OK, so where *is* the low pressure port? I see a lot of posts with "its between the compressor and the condenser" but nothing with a picture. I have a 98 V8 Mountaineer that needs a little topping off, and I'll be damned if I can find the port. Anybody got a picture they can upload?

Thanks in advance.

That's about as clear and concise as it gets!

Took these pictures one day while I was checking on the A/C. I remembered a time when I checked this forum and in every other thread someone was asking "Where are my Service Ports!?" ;)

I serviced the a/c on my son's Lincoln LS-8 the other day. Couldn't find the high side port to save my life. I actually had to go to the service manual to find it. You wouldn't believe where it was. Basically on the back of the compressor...which is on the bottom of the engine. What a pain.
