    You may encounter high head pressure issues as R-134A needs a little more condenser surface area than R-12. If it ran with low condensing pressures with R-12 it may work OK.

    I've actually taken the air cooled condenser and remoted it to a more desireable space which worked well. If you chose to do this you'd have to put a fan on the compressor to keep it cool.

    Well you'll certainly need a new cap tube. Why on earth would they change it from the original 134A to 404A. Better double-check with tech support people.
