Another GM "secret". Like the fuse for the ECM/OBD2 on my '94 Suburban was also the one with the label "Cigar" for the lighter.

Re: High side adapter fitting bad?

Are you talking about an R-12 high side fitting adapter? I have one for GM-type, and one Ford-type which I still use on my '88 B2200. What vehicle/year? A couple of years ago I bought a pack of refrigerant charging hose seals like this. Good thing, I had one fall out of a hose fitting, and some wear...

Re: R12 system on 79 Trans Am

I'm using 20+ year old 12 oz cans of R12. I suppose it is possible that they really are no longer 12 oz due to small leakage at the top of the can. Do these pressures indicate that the charge is a little low? My own 20 year old cans of R-12 are still fine. Before I vent the system and waste a bunch...

The leak check dye in the can can tell you where ...

Re: 1966 Oldsmobile A/C

Keep it R12 That would be ideal, but I am concerned about long term availability of R12. Thanks. If you're in USA, there's a glut of R-12, as there are few actual uses for it. It's legal to use. Most of the R-12 vehicles are either off the road or those are amenable to conversions have been switche...

Re: Finding A Leak In A New System

First make sure that the vacuum pump to gauge set connections, gauge set itself, and the hoses are not the problem.
