Well, ok, I didn't cover the gauge with black tape, instead I used a heavy dose of self-control and ignored it.
Added freon until the cycling stopped, then brought the pressure up to 35 psi. It was 76 degrees outside and I was shooting for 40 psi, but 35 was either all the system would take, or my third 12 oz can was empty. In either case, I'm now getting very cool air, tho certainly not COLD.
So I guess that's good enough and mostly I'm glad that some major component isn't broken.
So justanold, many, many thanks, you've saved me a lot of worry and a trip to the shop. Your generosity in taking the time to answer questions like these is greatly appreciated. :D
