you want to fill the high side? look for the hose that goes into the cab (the low side hose) and along it you will find the fitting > this might help you...when you find it than the other one is the high side.

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

Kelly's picture is correct BUT it's the low side (as shown in the picture) that you want for charging. NEVER hook up to the high side for charging! HTH. -Jim


BTW, unless the system has been converted to R134a you have R12 in there which can't be purchased anymore in the United States. -Jim
