Brian, this may be a silly question, but, am I correct in assuming the original system was empty/you had is evacuated before taking off parts?

Steve, THIS needs to be in the permanent tech section!

Yes.  It should be on the main site in the tech section.
 
For the time being, I'll make it a sticky.

I went a different route on Polaraco.  I was the first to install a Vintage Air Gen IV into a C Body and use all the factory ducts.  But my dash is different than the slabs so it may be harder prior to 69.  I don't have any compressor shots, but it's similar.  Only My condenser has fittings on each side.
