It's not bad at all. Shoot me a PM I might have a line on some good ol r-12 for ya. Cheap!98_1LE said:It has never been completely open. It worked awesome last year, but was getting weak by the end of the year. Earlier this year it worked, but not well. Now it won't even engage, so I suspect there is not enough refrigerant to allow the clutch to engage. I would say it definately has a leak.
