So I attempted to do this on my gf's 95 Accord. Vacuumed down fine and didn't lose pressure. Proceeded to start filling and the high side pressure skyrocketed to over 400psi. Low side hit about 50psi before I shut everything down. Thinking there's a blockage somewhere, I didn't do a complete flush of the system.

CD5 compressor

ok, so i got curious about what compressors would fit. after messing up the one i got at autozone and it seizing up on me i decided to try one from a 94 generation accord (CD5), I don't know the exact year car it came from, it was the next generation CD5 accord tho. It bolted right up, I switched the hose manifold that is on top of the compressor and put a new seal in it. this way my hoses would fit and not leak. the difference between the CD and the CB were the studs on the manifold. Anyways I also got new rubber hoses and replaced my expansion valve.

let me back track a little

I did take all the lines off and used ac flush the first time to make sure there was not any R12 residue in the system. I did this probably 2 years ago (haha). Then last summer tried to charge the system and was not so successful for a few reason, Used the OG rubber hose which was not made for R134, and I believe I did not add enough PAG oil to the system as I could not find how much the compressor needed. It was an EVERCO compressor from autozone. So I said screw it ill deal with the heat.

back to current time.

This year I said im tired of fogged up windows when it rains and the heat will be to uncomfortable to drive in. So I redid my AC system

To use the CD5 compress the one wire that comes off the compressor does not match the wire harness for the CB7 so you will have to cut the CD5 compressor wire and use a butt connector to connect the CB7 compressor wire you cut so that it will plug into the CB7 wire harness.

I pulled vacuum and use the 12 oz can and I believe its a 16 oz can of AC pro with UV leak detector. However I did not have a leak after pulling vacuum but I thought if there ever is going to be a leak this will make it easier to find. Using just thos 2 cans filled it up exactly to the right pressure and i have amazingly cold air, better than using a new compressor from autozone that was designed for our cars! or maybe I did something wrong the first time I don't know, either way I'm super happy with using a compressor already made for the R134 refrigerant!

just wanted others to know that a CD5 compressor will bolt up to the CB7 and only a few things need to be changed.

also if its not already been said, replace the rubber hoses if your doing the conversion and have not already because the R12's molecules are bigger than the R134 and the R134 will leak/sweat out of the older hoses.

also I got the compressor from the slavage yard!!!!! been a few days and it still works, its also a denso one at that, I do recomend turning the clutch by hand to see how it moves, also I pulled it from a car that had a little bit of pressure in the likes still.

Hope some of this information will help someone out, if not, then whatever haha.

I know it was very helpful to me, I sorted out my gf's 95 Accord AC system before last summer. New receiver/drier, and it charged up nice and has been ice cold since.
