King James,

I had a hole in my line as well, it was caused by the shifter linkage rubbing.

Just go to a junk yard, and grab that section of line. it is easier if there is no engine in the car (at the junk yard).

just make sure you dont kink or bend the line at all or it will not fit properly. also you need to get some new o-rings, and make sure everything it tight, but not to tight......

DO NOT pay a shop to replace lines with holes, that is a waste of money that you can save for a turbo or something!

I went to some mexi-junk yard, and they pulled the line (under my supervision) from the donor car, I removed my line and installed it, with filling the a/c back up, took about 1 hour.... cant beat that with a stick!

I would do all that except for the fact I am one lazy son of a bitch....I have too many unfinished projects on the go as is (at last count it was 7)....Plus in a month or two I will not be using a/c anyways as its gonna become cold as fuck yet again up here in the great white north.

Maybe its a next summer project lol...plus Im going to chicago this fall so Ill pick up the retro kit while im down there.

I also have no idea where this hole (holes?) exist and that brings me back to the lazy thing of not having the energy/motivation to check.

HAHA I feel ya..... I am from southern Oregon, I know exactly what you mean.....

Another thing, you should be glad you dont have a/c, my gas mileage went down by like 7-8 mpg...... so I am at 22mpg instead of my wintertime 30....

I recharged my freon like two years ago the day I left for TX and by the the time I got to palms springs I turn it on and still blew hot air... I think I may have a leak in the line or something and I know theres a few ways to check for one and if it was my comressor would any blow at all??? I have a swap now that came with a comprosser but no belt just alternator to crank (no point in using it if ac don't work).. so I kinda wonder that was ever it or leak in the line..

Anyone have a general range of price(s) for collecting the R12 from my system? Am I looking at $10 or $100?

Take the recommended capacity and multiply it by .70 and you have your answer. Seems 90-92 take 32oz and 93 takes 30oz, which puts you at 22.4oz for 90-92 and 21oz for 93 model.
