    R12 to R134a conversion

    OK ! So does that mean you drain the old R-12 oil that is in there now and when you charge the system up, the new refrigerant brings its own oil, or you can mix new and old?

    Switching ABS to Conventional.

    ?????????? Black89XR7....... Does that MC have another port on the driver's side all the way to the back? In other words, Does it have 3 ports and one bleeder, or 4 ports and a bleeder? Reason for the question is, my MC has 4 ports (2 in front) "like yours" and (2 at the rear) one of them is...

    Complete shut down !! Then OK, then off again.

    I think I found it, I hope!!!! Well: what I found was a defective ground connector right by the battery, :rolleyes: the black wire going from the negative post on the battery to the body ground, it seems that when I changed the ABS system to vacuum brakes, and replaced the battery with a new...

    Holes Ok; Here is what i found while at the junk yard, I looked at several T'birds and noticed that there were two different looking boosters on them, look at the vacuum fitting placement on the booster, the one I used has the fitting on the driver side of the MC (left side). The others, I...

    Bolt Holes!!!!!!! There is a blind hole on the firewall of your bird, :eek: look closely and you will see it, it is plugged up with a black rubber plug, :( by removing this plug you'll have the right pattern that fits the booster just right, :o on the inside however, that hole will...

    Switching ABS to Conventional.

    What about the clutch MC? Well John; I have a question, You mentioned about using a booster form a '89 or '90 non SC Bird, and the MC from a '93 Vicky, that's all fine and makes sense, ( since Napa wants $1775 for a re built ABS pump, good thing Prior is still somewhat affordable at $695) the...
