12oz can recharge

72PMD on Fri June 19, 2009 7:20 PM User is offline

Year: 1972
Make: Pontiac
Model: Firebird
Refrigerant Type: r-12
Country of Origin: United States

This is probably a stupid question, but if I use 12 oz cans of r-12 to charge my system, what do I do about air in the middle manifold hose each time I attach a new can? It will probably require about 5 cans (60 oz)

If your hose set doesn't have a check valve, purge a little out of the line each time you switch cans...

Granted the penguins might not be too thrilled about that!

Gotta love those old systems... 60 ounces of R-12... ahhh the good ole days!
