: Have any of you completed the 134a conversion on your E-23 compressor change out? What else was changed? Is it the same as on a US auto? How about cooling during a hot day after the change over? Did you change fans on the radiator? I am interested. Let me know.

Yes, mine was done with 134A - no real choice here in Australia - the system was totally empty and it is regulated to use 134A wherever possible. (We are very Ozone-hole aware down here).
The only thing that was changed was the drier which needed routine replacement as a service anyway.
I am yet to fire it up on a "hot day", as it is still getting a new thermostat put in to make the whole thing go. The mechanic put power to it while in the shop and generated 4 degree Celsius air (40F). I will post when all is back together.
