What? "you cannot tell if the system is charged by the gauges?" That is how I tell- and everyone I know does too. You can tell if the pressures are right then its charged properly. Yes sure you can vacuum the system and put the exact amount in. That is the only absolute way to know 100% how much exactly is in it. However, you can tell if it is very close by the pressures, Read FRANKHALLMAN, he answered it perfectly. The low and high are a ratio and I think your system is way overcharged. You need to evacuate- with recovery machine, then make sure no leaks by making sure it holds a vacuum, then charging it with the exact amount either using a scale or the recovery machine depending on the machine.
