Hello everyone- I am nearing the end of my restoration and I am getting ready to get the A/C finalized. I had the A6 compressor rebuilt, the POA rebuilt, the Dryer cut and rebuilt and the condenser and evaporator flushed. The system is clean. I am going to be using R12 again-quite expensive. Here is my question:
I am torn on whether to use the original style worm gear clamps or have the pressure fittings put on. I am going for a concourse restoration but I also want the A/C to work. Has anyone had experience with the original clamps on todays A/C hoses? I understand the hoses, with the nylon inside, leak over time with the worm clamps.
I appreciate any advice the group can provide.
