    yes
    @Speedytech7 @Empty_Lord

    Picked up a set of manifold gauges.

    At 85 deg ambient AC low side is like 25 psi and high side is 255 psi. Expansion valve / orfice tube?


    Thinking it's time to concede and let the dealership have their way with my wallet.

    Head pressure should be should be like 150 and suction like 35.
    You have high head and low suction. Somewhere you are restricted. So either the filter drier or expansion device

    General rule of thumb is head pressure is always +20° Over ambient on newer stuff or +30° Over ambient on older stuff.

    yes
    Hmmm

    Chart shows i should be at about 45-55 and 245-255.


    Not sure if these gauges are even accurate. Tacoma shows 35 and 425 :eek:

    Pretty sure car AC is the same as normal AC. Which you want about 40° converted for your suction and head is gunna vary on ambient but at 75° ambient you should be like 135psi on the high.

    I usually do the tool loaner gauges from oreilly. Can't beat free for an easy comparison.

    those ranch hand style ones are so freaking heavy though. Even if your springs can handle the weight, its still gonna be a big heavy thing hanging off the front of your truck.
