I am waiting on the new drier to arrive and then will be ready to move forward.

Also found a AC Parts shop that can rebuild the old compressor for $149, which was an AC/Delco. The one I bought is a Murray/Four Seasons, this one I paid $190 for. Is the AC Delco better or does it matter?
... for nearly $160 a pound (9.60/oz x 16...) I'd drive to YOU and fix your car with R12!!! that's $4800 per tank! even at the highest price they charged for 12, it was only $1500 for a 30lb tank... WOW. the current price for R12 in my refrigeration supply house is $488 for a 30lb tank... 1000% markup... cool.
wow what a rip off! unless that's ALL he charges for, no labor, no parts...
John HAUL AWAY, OR CRUSHED CARS!!! HELP ME keep the cars out of the crusher! A/C Thread
"as I ride with my a/c on... I have fond memories of sweaty oily saturdays and spewing R12 into the air. THANKS for all you do!
