Check here - they might have some info for you. I've got a 1953 model Cavalier Coke machine, but I've not had to add freon to it yet.

I believe there is an industrial type freon you'd have to use that is differant from the 12 and R134A. I could be wrong. One of the guys on here (engine) from Brooklyn is an HVAC engineer. He'd probably know.

Isn't something like R20 or R22? Does it have anything in it, like a tag, that says what it takes?

There should be a tag plate directly on the compressor.You can get the mod # and call a local refrigeration(hvac)supply house and they can look up the #,s and tell you what type of refrigerant.

The only 'industrial' coolant I know is pure ammonia.
And that is hardly used for anything anymore. I'd research those links if not more.....

Hey..I know where one is exactly like that model you have. It doesn't work anymore but maybe you could get it for spare parts. Let me know and I'll ask the guy if he wants someone to haul it off.
