A/C question on 126 chassis

Hi All,

Again, he posting is about my 1983 380SEC.
I am wondering whether the A/C compressor can handle R134a? Is this just a swap fittings, make sure system is tight, replace drier, evacuate, fill with R134a conversion (obviously not in this order), or does the compressor/other parts have to be replaced as well? (I know on some BMWs, the compressor's seals cannot take the new oil associated with R134a - thus the quesion).
Please help...
