If you get a conversion kit, oil and 134 freon, I have a vacuum pump and gauges to evacuate and fill it with 134. I have an R12 can tap, but I don't think it will hook up to my other tools.

Here's a link to one of the stickies in the 80-86 forum and you can see there two links regarding conversion to 134a: Link

The conversion is simply a couple adapter pieces that go on the high and low fittings. You would need those, the proper compressor oil, and freon. Then hopefully the system doesn't leak and functions properly.

I've heard before that you have to replace the drier/orfice tube?

Is the r134a as cold as r-12?

Where can I get the better r134a conversion kits?

The gauges are the same, it's all about the fittings. I have gauges, but would need the fittings. Orifice tubes are inline filters, and cause most ac issues to begin with so yes I'd change it (if there is one) and the dryers are low dollar and can clog up as well. Most parts stores won't warranty compressors unless you buy those at the same time.
