You are supposed to have the R12 professionally collected because it is an ozone depleting agent IIRC. Most ppl just stick a screwdriver in the valve with a glove and vent it into the air lol. After that, install a R12 to R134a adapter (the R134 uses a bigger quick disconnect) and then have it vacuumed and serviced with the 134a. That really is it. You can buy a vac/service kit at any box store if you are DIY.
