    I need info on charging an A/C system with a York compressor. I read where it needs 12 oz of oil. I think in the compressor. But does it also need oil in the lines?

    I have a York mounted on the 4BT in my Blazer. I saw no reason for it not to work just fine, but do you know of any potential issues?

    What cycles the compressor on a regular 78 chevy truck system? Is there a thermostat inside the evaporator box? Asking now to ake sure.

    side note: yorks cant be converted to r-134a and hold the freeon in. seals and gaskets not designed to work with it and no reto kits for them.

    Hmmmm. I'll check on that but they sell oil for them rated for 134a and they still put them in vehicles and they can't be putting r12 in them.

    But you did raise a valid point to check on. I rather not buy another compressor, but better now than after I put freon in.
