Question charging the AC

Took my 280sel to an AC place to get it charged and they wouldn't touch it because "it has been converted from R12 to R134 and it probably won't work". Is that true that R134 won't work? (Looks like the original compressor)

Big lots stores have R 134 refills. Check mbbraingears for an online manual for your car, or use the 'search this forum' function on the top right of the page.

You may want to post on the W 116 forum (73-80) . Even the 450's on the R 107 forum (71-84) should have a lot of similarities.

I bought some 134 at an Auto Zone close to me and was unsuccessful getting it in. I was able to attach it, turned on the air, etc but it didn't seem to be going in. I'll search another forum. Thanks!
