Question A/C guys?

I got ready to pull a vacuum on my truck ac and I have a dilema. The fitting on the vac pump is for R12 and my hoses are R134a. Is there an adapter that will screw on to this R12 fitting that will let me screw the 134 hose on? They are different sizes. See pic.

From a simple google search, yes they sell a ton of adapters for these fittings.

Either one of these will work.

Mastercool part number 82634. There should be a auto a/c shop that sells a/c components and equipment near you. If not I can drop one in a box and ship it to you. Let me know. You might take that part number to a NAPA and ask. J8 equipment in Dallas may have them as well.

I'm going to stop at Harbor Freight on the way home. The new pumps have both size fittings on them. Maybe they have the replacement for the model I have. If not, I think I'll just buy another pump.

Buy this one and take the fitting off of it and put it on yours. Probably cheaper that way. The fitting I have is 6.00, but we a long ways apart.

I'll look at it while I'm there. If the fittings will swap I'll get the $17 one. Thanks for the help.

Well, I bought a pump at Harbor Freight. I pulled a vacuum on it for 20mins then shut it off and it held for 30mins. Charged it up and now we will see.

It was working fine when I called it a day yesterday. Hopefully it is still working this morning after sitting all night.
