Air conditioning hoses

Anybody have a good picture of how the air conditioning hoses are routed? Just got my condenser in and am scratching my head on the hoses. Been about 2 years since I took it apart. Thanks.

Top line with Schrader valve is from compressor to top port on condenser. Just guessing based on what seemed to want to go to each port.

Got it together. Charged it up and it was working nice and cold but only 70 degrees outside. After work today on the way home should be a good test.

No clue what I was doing so I hope it works.

I had a nice and cool drive home from work today. My drive is almost an hour. 92 degrees, driving north with the sun shining on me thru the window, long sleeve button up shirt, dickies work pants, redwing composite safety boots. Windows up (wow I can hear the radio now!) I had to point the dash vents up as I was getting chilly. I am calling it a success. I still want my buddy to look at a set of gauges on the a/c in case I need another oz of refrigerant. I thought the pressures were still a little low but not sure what I was doing. I should have taken a picture of the gauges before I took them off but did not thin about it.

Congrats!! Glad it worked out. Sounds like by your work clothes you are melting all day so you need air conditioning.
