Dont have a set of manifold gauges, only have the little gauge that came with the recharge kit. It is showing around 27 which is just in the blue with the jumper out, drops a little when I put the jumper back in to cycle the clutch.

Hello, I had already run across that post from doing research before I posted the question(thats also how I foiund out how to test the hi pressure switch). I tried that also but still would not take the charge. Took the car by a local shop and the guy said it sounded like I had a blockage somewhere that was causing the ac not to circulate properly. He seemed to think that it may be a stopped up orfice tube or a faulty drier considering the line was ice cold but still blowing hot air. Do you think he is on the right track?

Hello, I thought it was the drier. Mounted on the pas firewall, round cyl, has a line going in the center top, same line that has the recharge port, another line comes out the top and curves around and goes back thru the firewall. The switch I jumped and tested was located on the top of the drier in between both lines. Am I testing the right thing?

HELLO, You are the MAN. You were correct on the switch. I had to order it from ford, put it on and the ol' compressor started talking, feed me. Added 2 cans of r134 and all is very cool now. Thanks so much for your help. Will be sending a donation here shortly. Eddie
