Well all the AC lines and condenser are new. Yahoo. AND I got that XxxDdfBb damn connector apart (thank you Mr Whizzer) and I can only suspect the clips were damaged by me or the previous owner. Anyway the mystery is over. The best I can tell if you were to compress the clips it should have come off easily and I would have saved $500 too. Well the Dr gave me full work privileges again so I can get busy and start to get this car ready for the Gillette stadium car shows every other Thursday. It’s a awesome show. Check it out sometime. BTW she is holding full AC vacuum 😎

I've never seen gauges connected up like that before.
That's how they are with a 71 Camaro 350 Dean. No other way to do it. New hoses were the same with one on the POA and the other from the dryer to the expansion valve.

Gotcha Dean. Haven't fired yet and just applying vacuum to both low and high pressure to make sure it holds vacuum and didn't care if the lines were hooked up correctly. I updated my first post to you saying from the "DRYER" to the expansion valve. Last time took me a while to find the correct Schrader valve to use to charge with these systems. They don't make it easy with different sizes like R134A for novices like me. No comment on that fitting? Ever see one like that before Dean.

Yep, Looks like it's coming along nicely. Just about ready to hit the road again.
