That's better, R134 is available. Yes the usual procedure is to pull a vacuum then recharge the system.

Not sure if 84 is different than 87 or 88 but R12 was 44 oz of refrigerant so r-134 is 34 Oz  thats for 88-93 and 7 oz of oil pag sp20 possibility  which is the same as pag 100  but you dont know how much oil is really in there. It needs to be recovered  several times. See how much oil comes out

I figured I needed 36 oz when I recharged mine, it started cooling fairly well at 24 oz so I stopped there. It's nice and cool inside and the compressor isn't short-cycling so I'll leave it for now.

Your gonna need some new gaskets, and or o-rings for whatever you unhooked.
