I was having a similar problem (pre evaporator) and had the system charged (r12) a coule of times and the local mechanic told me that I needed a core and receiver/dryer. When I ordered the parts through a friend who has a friend in a shop in a larger city (got the parts at cost) they recommended that we also replace the expansion valve. Reasoning: trash remaining in the system if you leave the old exp valve will cause a clog. Just a thought you might consider. I am not an expert!
