Unfortunately, if the air conditioning system is factory original and has not been converted to use the new R-134a refrigerant, you cannot refill the system yourself. R-12 refrigerant is the old stuff, it must be charged by a professional and will be very expensive. They quit making it almost 15 years ago. Depending on your location is could cost upwards of $300 to get it recharged, and if the system is low then you probably have a leak somewhere so that might be $300 out the proverbial window. If you plan on keeping the van, I would suggest that you convert the system to R-134a. A local air conditioning shop can do this for you. I will cost more than just a refill of R-12, but in the long run, it will be much cheaper as the refrigerant is MUCH less expensive should a leak develop.
Its located on the accumulator...................

Connect a freon tank an gauge to the Astros low side ac port. Start the engine and open the ac to high. Open the freon tank and fill the system till the gauge shows full.
How much freon shouls a 1986 Chevy converion van hold 3/4 ton air in back also
No. It uses r 134a refrigerant, an environmentally safe replacement for r 12 freon.
Remove the freon from the system. Remove the ac compressor belt and disconnect the lines. Unbolt the compressor, remove it, then bolt the new one in place. Reconnect the lines and belt. Pull a vacuum on the system then refill with freon.
weighs in at about 4125, i just junked mine,
Fluid is added through the transmission dipstick.
That's probably because that's the older van and the more original blinkers
Check on the door sticker to get the correct weight. Matters if your a cargo passanger or conversion van. Weight is all different
