	Clearly you guys know something I don't -- the (AC-Delco)
	compressor on my 5KT died last year, and the local shop
	wants $800 for an R-134 conversion.  This in spite of
	the fact that rebuilt compressors are freely available for
	about $150 and are R-134 compatible out of the box.

	I can easily replace the compressor myself, and I'm reasonably
	sure I could tackle any O-ring replacement that might be required,
	but have shied away from the job simply because of all the
	zillion warnings on the compressor installation/recharging

	Has anyone out there actually DIY'ed this job?  Tips would
	be appreciated!
