you may have to take it to a AC place if you want to keep the R12, if not get a change over kit and get the Leak detector for the UV light and then do that...

Don't use any sealant'*, they do more damage then they are worth. Go buy a R134a kit and some UV dye and convert your car to 134a, or take it to a reputable shop and ask them to find your leak..
