Robinair 17700 conversion to R134 help.

Post by RPM289 »

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.

Did you ever find any info on this? I searched the whole site, didn't find anything on converting a machine.

I found this on another site: https://www.pirate4x4.com/threads/conve ... a.1099614/

Have this same machine, looking to convert to 134A.

Thanks for any insight you can offer.
