    I don't worry about what people say........... Dick is the first half of my last name, it's ingrained in my DNA


    p.s. all the seals for you converted 134a system should be green in color.

    you only need to put the PAG oil in the compressor. just don't take the caps off of the drier/ receiver until you're ready to put it on, should be the last thing you connect. Just remember how much moisture is in our atmosphere, and the main purpose of the drier is to absorb mositure.

    sweet.. you the man.

    there is a mobile mechanic that comes around with a vac pump and the proper gauges who will vacuum the system after i clean and add oil.
    Quick question - where does the oil go? i know compressor will need some and other places i've read say that the Dryer needs oil too. What about in the lines? I assume you lubricate all the fittings, seals and o-rings too.

    PAG Oil. Yes I mean the expansion valve (TXV = Thermostatic expansion valve)

    you should be good with those parts.
    Hopefully you have the equipment to pull a proper vacuum on the system, or it will never work properly.

    Yeah I'm RHD... I will need to go to a wrecker for a line.

    I ordered a new expansion valve - is that what you mean? also trying to get hold of some flush because i am going to take most of the lines and condenser off to clean before hopefully putting together ready for conversion.

    Esther oil is the right one for r134a?

    Anything else i should do?

    is your car RHD? ifso, I'm not sure where you can get a line that you need. if you were in the states I'd help you fab something up...
    You can try the hychill crap but I'd rather see you convert. if you convert to 134a you'll need to change the TXV in the evaporator box, as they are specific to the kind of refrigerant in the system. You'll also need to drain/ flush and change the oil in the compressor to the proper oil.

    My system has no charge so ordered dryer/receiver and seals - probably need those conversion bits as it still has r12 connections so yes - r134a will be the go. You ever heard of Hychill HR12?

    You know a place I can get a missing part of my line for ok price and Aussie shipping?
