R12 is still available. Some cars just need to stay that way, and the Corvette is the best example.


Amen.

Re: 73 stingray with high AC pressure

Tube & Fin condensers will not handle the heat load of R134a refrigerant. An upgrade to a parallel flow condenser will help. Finding a direct drop for your vehicle will be difficult.

Re: R134a price up over 500%

This will bring out the alternative refrigerant craze! I wonder when they make these adjustments, taxes or production. If they ever have an idea on what the end user deals with from their actions.

Not certain if it just a switch or complete contorl head. But either way you should be able to replace the switch.

Re: PAG-oiled components in former mineral oil systems. Corrosion Issues?

Oil has improved over the years. The Santech DEC Pags are pretty much as good as you get. BVA still makes a great oil. It's just had to get these days. Santech is claiming you can use thier DEC PAgs with R12 or R134a.

Re: 4 way R12 manifold

It's not a 4 way version. But I suggest a quality Santech brand.
