Re: 87 Chevy truck issues

One other question - what should I be looking at for a new cycling switch? I don't know if the previous owner changed it as part of the swap, so I want to install a new one...one that is appropriate for 134a. An ackits part number would be perfect... Also if anyone knows if which high pressure port ...

Also, want to change out the crap discount auto store 134a fittings for some quality stuff. The low side is easy with the MT0141-1. But will this take the MT0142-1(3/8-24 (3/16")) or the MT0143-1(7/16-20 (1/4"))?

Thanks
