Charging the air conditioning with R12

Hi Guys,The never ending saga continues.I'm thinking that rebuilding the rotary valve has the pneumatic system working now.  I have a vacuum pump and a new filter dryer.  I also borrowed a set of R12 gauges.  I also have 30 pounds of R12 (long story). Can anyone point me to a procedure specifically for charging ?  I know the system is flat and tight now (I pulled a vacuum and it held for two days). See More
