True, and if your system worked well on R-12 it should be fine on R-134a. If it was marginal though you may not be happy with the conversion. Just another point to consider.

R134 will blow colder than what he has now.

I converted the old 1995 Dolphin over to 134 when I decided I needed some cooler air blowing in my face on those hot, summer trips. It was quick, easy and was still blowing cold 4 years later when I sold it.

Worth every single penny I put into it which wasn't much... a few cans of refrigerant, some pag oil and some new caps. Done.

Do go to an AC shop or a auto shop you can trust. I had my 93 f150 done for around $400. Changed it over to r134 and installed a NEW compressor since my old one was shot.
