Is it r12 or r134a? Either way if you crack open the system you have to replace the drier. If it's r12 you might as well convert it to r134a because r12 is very expensive. If you convert you have to replace the drier, oil, orifice and flush the system. I just replaced the ac clutch on my wife's car and they wanted $1100 to do it. I did it myself in a day and $200 in parts. If you do it yourself you can get a vacuum pump at Harbor Freight for about $100.

Good luck either way.

  P.S. Does anybody need an old York compressor with 74,000 miles on it?
