you can rent the vacuum pumps at autozone. I've still got R12 on my 93 EX coupe since it uses the Hadsys style compressor which was very difficult to find. Replaced mine back in 2013 when the car had about 225k on the chassis.

A can of R12 is about 25 on craigslist, so its still accessible. I'd keep running it. Once its fixed properly, it'll last another 5-7 years with a new compressor. Nothing should leak out in that time anyways.

It has already been converted for r134a. I know r12 is a bit colder but don't want to muddy the waters.

Hey Fleetwood, you mentioned replacing the pressure switch. Can this be done without releasing pressure from the system? Also, the tech that filled my system said that it needs an R-134A specific pressure switch, but I don't see any advertised that way. Which one did you use?

fleetw00d is very helpful fleetw00d is very helpful
Pressure has to be released to replace the switch (if you don't, you'll release the pressure and lose the Freon when you remove the switch). I believe I used a used OEM Honda switch that I had in my parts collection.
