And a gauge set?

Most of the a/c pros here shy away from giving diy instructions on system charging due to the potential dangers involved.

It would be a good time to convert it to 134a the whole conversion kit is about $30. Have a nice day. Geo


Edited transposed numbers only in reply.

If you know it is completely empty, this would mean that you have opened the system at some point, or there is/was a leak which bled out all of the freon. First, you need to be sure that the system is now sealed against continuing leakage, and second, you will need to have a vacuum pump capable of drawing a vacuum to manufacturers specs before adding anything.

the advice given by tow guy, and goldstar are right on the money.
any law abiding a/c tech won't give any info on how to charge a system on the diy forum, believing that most do not have the equiptment on hand to handle this type of job. remember, the freon in a system (any system, for that matter) does not wear out, get old, or loses it's ability to cool(or heat) over time.
and a true, workable conversion to another refridgerant, would cost way more than $30.00, seals, o-rings,fittings etc. and remember, you must make sure that there are no leaks in the system, no matter what refridgerant you are using. just some things to think about.

Sometimes "helping" consists of making sure you don't kill yourself.
