The A/C went out on my 1991 Ford Explorer. I did not trust the local dealer or shops here in Key West, so I had planned to drive with the windows down until I transfered to another duty station. While up in Lake Wales I met Roger Schmidt. He had a booth at the local mall and was advertising retro-fit R12 to R134. I explained my problem and we agreed the next time I was in town I would drive the Ford up. The complimentry A/C check was free and since I was making the trip anyway, I would not be out anything. It was two months before I could make the trip and he agreed to still check the A/C for free, and since we had made the arrangements earlier he would not charge me his current rate increase. The system was checked and determined to have various leaks, but the compressor was good. After weighing the pros and cons we decided to go ahead with the conversion. Practically the complete system was removed, flushed with a dry cleaning fluid, and re-installed with the propper O-rings. A new accumilator was installed and the leaking high pressure hose rebuilt. New lubricant, vaccuum, and charge completed the job. Roger suspected I may have a minute leak in the evaporator but explained the cost of the part and labor and stated we could run the system for six months to a year and see if it was good, vise possibly replacing it needlessly. The book stated 2.4 hours. He laughed and told me that was what he would charge but the job took almost 4. Parts, labor, and conversion for under $300.00. His honesty, professionalism, and pains to save me money are definately note worthy. Thanks Roger for a job well done.
