I hope that helps someone in some way. It's not complicated but it is a pain in the rump to be upside down for that long. You may need to take several breaks during this process to give your neck and back a break as well as your knuckles... It's not an easy repair but it is pretty straight forward.

If I left any thing out please feel free to add comments to these instructions. Generally these instructions should cover most years of Buick Roadmasters.

Just an additional note:
If you have to disconnect your air you may have to upgrade your entire system to the new R34 system instead of R12 because of the new environmental laws in some areas. Try to avoid this as best you can because R34 is not as effective in an older systems as it is in newer systems simply because the evaporator and condenser are smaller and they need to be large to transfer the heat in the R34. It's not nearly as effective at the transfer of heat as the environmentally unfriendly R12 was.
