Hi, names Brian, I'm new to the site. A friend of mine told me about this forum after seeing me go crazy
trying to get an answer to what I thought would be a quick question. I drive a 92 Integra LS, which I'm
getting ready to do a JDM motor swap out of a 96 LS. My car uses R12 and the 96 uses 134a.
My question is "can I use the 134a compressor from the 96 LS in my R12 system, or should I convert
the system over to 134a because I changed the compressor?"
ANY advice would greatly appreciated.
Better idea is to drain the oil from the 96 compressor and refill with mineral oil and use R12. I would also replace the drier and the oil related with that item.
Do you even need to change the compressor? Your 92 compressor might bolt onto the new engine. Also it's usually possible to R&R engine without disconnecting any A/C lines. If you have a working R-12 system now, try to leave it alone if possible.
Sorry, I should have mentioned that mechanically it still works, it just has several leaks.
Instead of having it rebuilt or buying a new one. I thought I would use the one that came
on the motor. Having between 20-35k it would be worth a shot.
