Last week my compressor went bad, so I got a rebuilt off ebay (a $150
die-roll), spent the $22 for a receiver dryer from pep boys, a buddy had
the r134 adapter and the oil, and charged 'er up w/ r134. Blows nice
and cold... No complaints, and I'm won't go into panic mode every time I
might have to r&r an a/c part.
