Robinair 17700 conversion to R134 help.

Postby RPM289 » Sat Oct 24, 2020 6:05 am

Just picked up this machine for $50 has 1/2 tank of R12 which is good I need to charge up my 88 Bronco. But want to see if it can be converted to 134.

Thanks!

A discussion about Robinair machine conversions appeared on this forum quite a while ago. Although dated, it'll give you some good ideas about how to approach this. Search "Converting a Recovery Recycling Machine" (without the quotes) in the Archived Forum.

It's been discussed a few times back in the early days of R134a.
