i am an autobodyman man and i charge ac's all the time, but my wifes jeeps ac was a liitle weak so i sucked it down and charged it. it reads 325 on the high side and 80 on the low. it wont cycle unless i unplug the fan motor, then the low drops to 23-25 and it will cycle. i charged it twice to see if i did something wrong and it has the correct amount of freon. i also flushed the condensor out with some brake cleaner and compressed air. it didnt seem to have any restrictions. help, i don't want to throw alot of money in parts at this car .
You have almost no capacity.
The low side falls into line with no cooling load, so the TXV is OK.
Either a restriction in the lines, receiver/dryer or condensor. My bet is the condensor.
Your condensor has several tiny parallel paths for refrigerant, and can pass small volumes of compressed air easily, even if several passages are blocked or crushed. The air side of that condensor is also sensitive to dirt, bugs, paint, etc. - it has fine, dense fins.
Hose the condensor down, and see if the low side drops. If it does not fall, then check the receiver dryer.

Trysoraying the condenser with a water hose. If the pressures drop.you have condenser airflow problems. Are you sure your charging equip. is measuring the correct charge? It appears you either have condenser airflow or overcharge problem.
I had a Caddy in last Friday that was doing some strange things. Condensor looked clean untill you got down low and really looked through it then you could see all the sand and bugs.
I blew it out with our steamer and it fixed it.
