    Gaaaddd.... I miss that truck. :cry: But I'm so glad it's in the hands of someone that will appreciate it, and it's out of the salty New England winters. I have another care package for you that I'm probably gonna drop in the mail tomorrow...

    Friends, My annual check-up in June found I was in perfect health with the exception of quite a bit of protein in my urine. A 24 hour urine collection and testing confirmed the problem. A couple of weeks ago I checked into the hospital where I...

    Got the compressor out and found oil leaking at the main seal behind the clutch where @KLF talked about. Went ahead and drained it and put it back on. Got it re-assembled but it won't hold a vacuum. Replaced all o-rings except for on the...

    Don't just replace the O rings you can easily get to. Replace all of them. My 60 and the runner both got converted to R134A. Drain the oil out of the compressor and fill away. 1/2 in the compressor and 1/2 in the Drier. Use PAG45 oil :)

    Hey Greg, good to hear from you again. I rebuilt a compressor once, when it started leaking from the main seal behind the clutch. It was not easy, I had to get a special set of snap ring pliers, and the seal was really expensive. Got it all back...

    R12 uses mineral oil. Originally, 134a used polyester but then in later years switched to PAG which is supposed to be compatible with either refrigerant. I’ve done 3 R134a changeovers and each time we just got as much oil out of the compressor as...

    My buddy thought he had a flush gun but couldn't find it so I'll get one tomorrow and try to wrap up the job. Couple of followup questions. I've already installed the expansion valve but I didn't flush the evaporator while it was out. Will...

    R134A conversion works great! After replacing all of the hoses and the belts I am ready to hit the Smog joint tomorrow.. Question, does any one make or have plans for a low key, non winch, non tube bumper for the second gen runners?? I just...

    My intention is to clean it thoroughly, but the Toyota literature states that there is no need to get rid of the mimeral oil. Still gonna clean it. :meh:

    You should be fine re-using the stock one. Just make sure you replace the drier and the expansion valve & all o-rings while you have the system evacuated.

    Just an FYI. A NEW Denso is $220 at Rockauto. I would do this instead of getting what you have rebuilt, or purchasing a junk rebuild. Oh, wait, it is what I did. :cool:

    I've got a new drier and expansion valve are on the way. O-Ring kit as well. Plan to clean the evap up while I'm in there for the expansion valve, replace the o-rings that are accessible, flush the system, pull a vacuum then recharge the...

    I just converted my 1990 runner to R134. It was not complex. Here at 108* in vegas I am not disappointed with the way 134 works at all. I have not done a actual temp of the air coming out of the vents. But good lord it helps. See my...

    Anyone seen a thorough thread on AC conversion specific to 1985 +/- 4-runner? Mine is R-22, not keeping up with 95 degrees and 90% humidity.
