    Rofl...I love it. But 407a is a r22 replacement and he would have to change txv which he has no access to.

    What is the price of 420A? Thats what I would dump in there. Simply because I have a few drums on hand.

    PHM if your raise was about the price of refrigerant than i fold and the pot is yours.. But from what i have briefly read is that r417 is a R22 replacement and the gentleman didn't want to have to do a lengthy conversion. This is why i recommend the R416a. If he converts to anything other than a R12 replacement then he will have to clean the whole system up, replace Txv (which he said he would have to drop the evap) and replace the piston in the distributor and most likely the compressor.

    Or he could just replace it with 409 and be done with it. Right not cheap, but I have always had good luck with it and will continue to use it as long as I can. No propane in it.

    Lytning the o.p. stated that 409 was too expensive for him. 409 is a good replacement and have nothing against it. Was giving my 2 cents.
