Haven't used it personally. What I do know is that Freeze-12, known also as
FR-12 and FRIGC has been approved by the EPA under SNAP (Significant New
Alternatives Policy) and as such, it requires

"a unique set of fittings to prevent the accidental mixing of refrigerants.
If the car is being retrofitted, any service fittings not converted to the
new refrigerant must be permanently disabled."
"Charging one refrigerant into a system before extracting the old
refrigerant is a violation of the SNAP use conditions and is therefore
illegal."
Source - IMACA study guide (the one you get when you take the test)

The real problem with blends like Freeze-12 (which the EPA has approved
under SNAP) is the fittings are not always converted like they are required
to be. Your employer could be opening themselves to a large liability if
they aren't "doing the whole job".

It appears in my re-reading my post that it sounded like I dislike
Freeze-12. I haven't used it, so I won't offer an opinion. The
mixing/contamination potential due to incorrect reclamation/conversion is
the real problem and is what I was trying to get across...

Rich,
What do you know about the Freeze 12? The trucking company I work for is
using it in their old R12 systems. They claim it is completely compatible
with R12. But I thought I remember reading a few years back that it isn't.
Thanks.

Yes, but we are working on our own private fleet that will probably never
see another owner. So cross contamination will only affect our own. I see
what you're getting at, though. The real problem and discussion was cross
contamination of refrigerants. I'm not sure if our systems were ever
recovered and evacuated before the FR12 was used. We usually top off a
system with refrigerant loss (not excessive) or evacuate a completely empty
system. I didn't mean to sound defensive, nor did your post come across
that way. I was just curious what you knew on FR12.

Evaporator leaks are pretty common. I've replaced 3 this season out of my
divisions 16 trucks. 3.5- 4 lbs of leaking propane in the interior or under
the hood of a car is a bad thing. I've seen the after pictures of cars that
have exploded from this. The passengers didn't survive, to put it mildly.

I put clearence lights on my '73. It was very easy. The roof is one layer,
the headliner will cover up all the screws and wires. Just screw down the
lights how you like them (I chose to have them all evenly spaced - vs. the
three center ones closer), remove headliner, wire the lights together and
run the wire down the post between the door and windshield on the driver's
side. I then chose to run my wire under the hood and hook it to a parklight
wire, so the clearence lights would come on when I turned on my lights (but
you can just hook them to a toggle switch if you want). I bought a kit that
came with 5 lights and the wire and connectors for $20 at K-mart or Walmart.

This couple hours of work makes a big improvement.

obtaining a pair of these if anybody where a pair is. Thanks. Richard

Travis, I have a good set of the Ford factory clearance lights on the cab of
my '77 F-150. I think they look kinda cheesy (no accounting for taste) and
was planning to remove them as part of my restoration. If you want this
set, along with factory harness, etc., make me an offer.

Check the belt tension. Power steering pumps need only be tight enough to not allow the belt
to slip. The biggest cause of power steering pump failure is too overtighten the belt... It puts
a tremendous strain on the front bushing/bearing & seal, and this causes a whine as you describe.

Good luck.

There is a replacement for r-12 on the market now called r-409
its not a "transitional" gas like fr-12. It works with conventional mineral
oils but wont mix with r-12.
I have it installed in a deli counter at work. Its supposed to be a bit more
efficient than r-12.

One item that i read in a trade journal a while ago was quite
interesting. Seems the single biggest item smuggled into the united states
and canada in terms of dollar value last year was freon. Of course the
dollar value of freon is quite inflated, and it really doesnt have the
news value that illegal drugs do.

Would propane really be that dangerous in an a/c system? It really isnt
a problem in propane fueled vehicles, and the quantities for fuel are
really quite a bit more than for an a/c system. Propane is now used as a
propellant in most aerosol cans as a "safe" replacement for cfc's.

I would recommend taking it to a glass shop. Watch them do one the first
time. Then if you are not a skilled glass cutter, you need to practice
cutting glass. Trust me, I have helped and watched my Dad do this and it is a
tricky practice, even to a skilled craftsman.

I will tell you how I know of it being done since you have asked.

You must make a pattern to be certain of the amount of glass you need to
remove from the windshield. Then trace that onto the glass. Preferably in a
way to leave most of the shaded top area of the windshield.
You will have to follow the line with a glass cutter on one side. Be careful
on the edges or you will crack it.
After cutting you have to manipulate the glass by hand to get the glass to
crack where you scored it. This is where you may meet with defeat. The glass
is curved and the crack will want to follow the curve and not the scored
area. I cannot even begine to tell you how to do this. I can do it, but I
can't describe the technique. Other than stressfull.

After you complete one side you have to do the other because this is
laminated glass.

Ok, got both sides done? If you made it this far, you are the baddist man in
the whole downtown!!!!!

Now for some fire!. You have to wet the area down with alcohol on a cotton
string that follows the cut. Really any alcohol will do. Light it and be
careful. Just let it burn for about 5 - 10 seconds or until you get the
plastic that is laminated between the glass to melt a little. Pull the piece
of glass away you are cutting off slightly by bending and pulling in small
increments. You need just enough room to get a scraper blade (razor blade) in
there to cut the plastic and free the piece of glass... Whew! Are you with
me? Ok.

Now get some 180 or close sandpaper and sand the edges very carefully until
smooth. Now you get to install what should be the proper size windshield in
your custom chopped top truck. Enjoy!

<>

I don't know about that. It may work. Just haven't heard of it before. It
will require some special tools and very careful taping or covering of the
glass for it to be cut just right without scratching up the part you want
untouched.

Good thing about this is... you will reduce the chances of breakage with the
sandblasting technique to about zero.

Oh and don't forget the backglass, door glasses and wing vents!

Hope this helps!

AutoKrafters, Dennis Carpenter, LMC, Larry Evenson, Obsolete Ford Parts and
several others carry the door panels and visors too. Look close though,
prices vary even on the same parts from the same (original) supplier. LMC is
a good example. Same parts, beautiful catalog....and higher prices.

I thought LMC had the better prices. Am I wrong?
When you say "same" supplier, Phil, do you mean that the retailers all get
the parts from the same source? Any idea who that is?
I'm ready to buy a lot of parts and would like to hear some advice from you
guys.
Thanks

Haven't done a real in-depth comparison but on the few products I did
compare, Dennis Carpenter was a little bit less expensive...
