    The numbers look to me like a compressor issue - nothing easy inexpensive..

    Were those pressures taken while the compressor is cycling or off?

    Pressures were read while not cycling, were both higher when the compressor was on.

    Hey! Finally got it all fixed!! Yes the orifice tube was plugged, very much so, the cause was a failed compressor!! Replaced compressor, evaporator orifice tube and drier, also flushed the rest out with brake clean and let dry. After a good evac and recharge all is good! Thanx a lot for everyones help!!

    Thanks for letting us know the outcome. We're always glad to know. Sorry it was labor intensive and parts expensive, still glad it's working now!
