For all of you with R12 stock A/C Civics (pre-1994)....How did you convert to the R134a (since R12 was discontinued in 1994) and how much was it? Can I do it myself (the conversion, not the recharging)
the changeover kits are sold pretty much everywhere, i think Walmart even carries them. comes with new oil for the compressor and a little bottle of freon, along with all the chit you need to do it. yes you can do it yourself, not very hard. i think the kit is like $35
but people have been saying for years that you need to change the oil in the compressor or when you change over it will go to shit. but they are finding out now that it really isnt necessary, all you have to do is have your r12 recovered and then jus add the r134 freon and viola! it works.
Need a second opinion here:
I have an 89 CRX Hf that had working AC, not amazing, but it worked. I assume it was R12 as there were no converter nipples going on.
A while back someone hit let head on, broke the radiator and mangled the condenser, but didn't rupture it.
I decided since I was...

So, I have a 1995 Civic Ferio Vi, with a D15B (two stage vtec) engine in it. Imported from Japan, so all JDM parts.
But... Something backed off the bolt on my main pulley (AKA harmonic balancer), and it got damaged. So, now to find one.
For you say anything I've done the search of done four searches and after getting to the 20th page I give up . My plan is to use a D15B7 and put the Max peating rod rods which are higher at 134.5 mm which is only at half a millimeter larger than stock rods. Along with this I plan for a z6 head...
