    I am converting my truck to r134a. Right no the system isnt charged but it does have some freon still left in it. DO I need to have this taken out before I retrofit it with a kit that I bought at Schucks/Kragen?

    The system should be evacuated of all R12. I also believe there are some O rings that get replaced to convert to r134a but I may be wrong. If the system needs to be opened for any reason it will need evacuated again to remove any moisture from the system before you recharge it.
