Just wondering how many still have working R12 a/c systems. I thought it was pretty cool that mine still works at 25 years old. Not sure how it's gonna perform when the temps get past the upper 80's here in Ohio.

Ive heard R-12 runs cooler,but I dont have any scientific evidence to back it up. Gotta be an HVAC guy in our bunch that could weigh in?

I have a 30lb cylinder of R12...Anybody want to trade a station wagon for it? Very Happy

Just joking around but I did come across a 30lb cylinder while cleaning out a old dealership parts department. My boss at the time that bought the inventory knew my dad and I had old cars and asked if any had R12. I told him my dad's '75 Corvette did so he said I could have it.

I'm a bit of an automotive HVAC nerd. R12 does run a tad bit cooler. Below is a picture of my old 1990 Acura Legend after I replaced the a/c compressor completely evacuated the system and refilled with r134 a and synthetic oil. If I recall this pic was snapped after the compressor cycled off. It was also a 90+ degree day.
