And along this line, does anyone know of a "modern" conversion for a 
4k/CGT compressor?  Like a Sanden type?  I suppose preferably it would be 
a very small, light, efficient Japanese one <ack>.

If it's a consideration, it would be for a car converted to R134a (which 
by the way, I've now noticed is nowhere near as efficient as my mother's 
Saturn running R12.  Hers is so good you have to turn down so you don't 
freeze, no matter what the outside temp.  Mine, is not.)
