I'm reasonably adept at soldering; no problem with electrical or copper 
plumbing and I've even had some success with body work.

But my first thought would be to take it to the local radiator shop and let 
them deal with it.  They've got the skills and the tools
(including the acid dip tank); and so far at least, the charge has been less 
than I expected.

Worth asking, anyway.

BTW, true MAPP gas is no longer available in the US.  What they are selling is 
a substitute.  To me at least, it doesn't seem to
work as well.
