So i used the ultra 32-3maf polyol ester oil in my compressor and everything works great now. I filled it up with 100ml although the compressor was not 100% empty. I did this since i lost oil else where in the system

Whoa, guy. I sense some hostility. All I was trying to do was help, I promise! :-) I'm not trying to be malicious, just to help prepare people for this DIY.

One thing that I noticed wasn't mentioned (correct me if I'm wrong) was that there are actually 6 discs to the DENSO compressor, and not 4. Only 4 were mentioned and only 4 were set up in the image to be shown on that towel. I had to look closely at the corner of an image of the compressor being taken apart to discover where these plates went. Of course, if I were paying attention to how it was taken apart, I wouldn't have had that issue. But my point is it wasn't apparently purposely mentioned or shown.

Also, like it or not, there's always some working of a part or fastener back and forth at some point in this project; I've been working on my cars long enough to know that. AC lines are definitely no exception. They're thin, they're made of soft metal, and they're old!

Above all, man, just calm down for a second, take a step back, take a breath, and read my post again. I'm sure you'll see that in another light, I wasn't trying to scare people away from this thing. Just wanted them to be more prepared, is all. I 99% love the DIY and it made me feel empowered to take this on, which I thank you for.

Question

Awesome DIY, I had my R12 recharged about a year ago due to the o ring leak. The system is working now. However, I want to clean the evaporator and the condenser out, but I think the gas would leak out of the system. Is it possible to do the cleaning without leaking gas?
Thanks.

The reason for rebuilding the compressor is the oil won't mix. The newer accords 94-97 a/c compressers can be used and you just need to swap the pulley out and the outlet plate on the top.
This worked for me, and might be easy to find. My compressor was from a 96 accord.
This is a great DIY. Ive done mine twice. Once the wrong way and the second time this way.

I do have a question that Maybe somebody can answer.
Has anybody used a Paralell flow condenser? They claim to be more efficient than our condeser which our tube and fin. My only complaint is Time it takes to cool and in traffic I get a rise in vent temps if I have not been driving the car with the a/c on for more than 10 min.

They have these condensers on ebay for around 65. You would have to get two hoses modified and prob would have to drill through the rad support to route the lines.

thanks for the great DIY.

O-Rings

Hi! I plan on replacing my O-Rings also. But I've been wondering, lately, does every single O-Ring in the kit, go into the a/c system?

When replacing the O-rings theres quite a few that need to be changed but over all youll use a little less than half of the kit if i remember right.
Hope this helps.

Peace, gummiegorilla.

I'm following this DIY today, my system has been converted to R134a and my system holds a vacuum but the clutch is bad on my old compressor, so new compressor and drier go in today, the flush and o-ring change is just a precaution. I got another Denso compressor from the junk yard for $50 with a 6 month warranty. (TEST CLUTCH WITH 9V BATTERY BEFORE LEAVING THE YARD!)

My stock one is still cold but this is nice for when when I would want to convert. Would all that fit in there with an h22 swap ?

did i read right where one could use a 94-97 accord compressor? and does that already use the r134a stuff? would make cleaning the compressor step easier cause then you can just go to a jy and hope it works and just clean the lines out.

also wanna make sure i read right that the es r12 can be used so one wouldnt have to clean the lines n stuff?

either way i need to pull the lines and check for leaks and clean stuff up.

well i guess i dont have to pull the lines to check for leaks but i want to.

i thought this would be a pretty cool addition to the DIY. very inexpensive ( 1-2$ /6ft ), mass zipties at harbor freight or walmart like 5$.

there has been some applications where no noticeable difference is discovered. if that were the case then just remove it and recycle the material for something else. On a side note, I used some of that cheap foam stuff for the soft lines in front of my heat shield on my old DA9 and it did not catch on fire or melt. Im in Louisiana where during the summer it gets to 90-100 degrees daily.

I got this done to one my 93 SEs this past summer, and if IIRC, it cost +/-$300 at the dealership.

Did that include the retrofit and flush all the old r-12 and putting in the r-134a? Some people quoted me like around $500

In searching for info on compressors, I ran across this thread and realized that I never replied to this! AFAIK, the price did include that. I'm not sure if there was any R-12 left in the car, but that did include putting in the r-13.

The compressor in themy other 93 SE is now officially dead, so I"m on the hunt for a replacement. It was retrofitted years ago, so at least I don't have to worry about that on this car.
