Hello all

I had a question regarding an 86 spiders a/c. First of all id like to know what the refrigirant capacity is. Second, There are 2 ports on the compressor, Suction and Discharge with an additional port on the receiver/dryer, Where do you folks hook up the high and low sides ? Thanks in advance.

suction is low side, discharge is high side. You can connect high side to port on receiver/drier.

Regarding capacities, I do not know. HOwever, with R-12, you'll be real close if you charge the system on a warm day, with top down, and a/c on full cold (with fan on hi) and charge until bubbles in sight glass go away...
