Re: 68 AC needs freon
ED, I agree with Jay. Run it by a shop to have them evaluate your system.
In most cases you really need to put a set of gauges on the A/C system to check the preformance. The problem might not be the freon charge at all. Any A/C tech will tell you that simply dumping in another can of refrigerent isn't a cure-all for mild performing systems. It is really easy to over charge these small systems if you aren't familiar with them. Then the bad stuff starts hapening... slugged compressors, split cores, blown seals, etc. R12 is too dammmed expensive to blow away!
Take it to a real automotive AC place. Not a fix-all repair facility. A couple bucks for experienced shop labor could just save you a bunch of money in the end!....Jb
