    When converting an R-12 system to a 134A it appears that different size and colors of the orfice tube are available, what seems to work the best for a conversion on a stock 91' Exp? Thx for any help.

    Thx for the graphs and info, the blue orfice tube may be the way to go for the 134, i'll give it a try and find out how it works.

    I just did an R-12 to R-134 conversion on my '93. I went from a red orifice tube to a blue one. The results are very good. The outlet airtemperature is in the high 30 to low 40 degree range.

    Aren’t they different colors merely to represent the actual climate temperature range perimeters for the automobile’s permanent place of most use or point of destination? Between ( X low to Z high ) temp range as in, the blue is colder part of states, and red represents warmer? Similar to the thermostats installed when the car is manufactured will not be distributed the same for every car, but rather different depending on the part of the globe it is going to be used most.
