With something that old the evap is definitely leaking. What refrigerant is in the units you speak of? R12 is the same for mobile equipment as for stationary. I would not go putting any recycled refrigerant into a Sub-Zero without first installing a huge filter/dryer.

Your best bet is to throw in a 4204400 evap and a 4201670 compressor, evacuate the system and charge with either virgin R12, r414a or r414b (hotshot®), I have had good results with both replacement refrigerants.

Or, get a new fridge.
