Unless your Skylark has been converted to R134a it's a R12 system. There's 2 products you can use. Freeze 12 or R12a. Both are drop in replacements for the old, unavailable, R12. You'll use the low side service port located on the accumulator. The accumulator is the large metal can looking thing on the passenger's side of the engine compartment near the firewall. The service port may still have the blue plastic dust cover on it. Remove the dust cover to charge it. HTH. - Jim
