Subject: Re: [Imperial-Club] 60 AC condenser/cooler/line installation completed.You can buy R 12 on eBay. If your not a licensed tech, you fill out the form stating you plan to resell to a licensed tech and your good to go.JohnHi Norm and all,I have two imperials now needing R 12 to get them to cooling next year, but only have three small cans left from the dark ages when you could get them on sale for $0.89. I don’t want to change over to the new 134 or what ever it is, so am looking for a directly compatible replacement for R 12. Some of the things I have seen are hydrocarbons that supposedly cool well, but are highly flammable if you happen to get a leak. In fact, I think they are against the law here in Louisiana. If anybody knows of a good substitute for R 12, I would love to know about it.Jimmy‘56 4d Imperial‘67 Crown Coupe
Last night I was bored and energetic, so I installed the condenser and cooler on my 60 and re-connected all the lines and hoses. Not a terrible job, but I discovered that in order to get the condenser positioned correctly, the front vertical brace has to come out. Well, all's in its place now and as soon as I have the gauges re-done by JC Auto, I'll see about getting some good ole R 12 in to the system to get it crankin.
