Hi Jake,

This is Rob, one of the Experts here on Just Answer. I am not overly versed on heat pumps, but I do understand the refrigeration process. going through a metering device should cause a drop in pressure. If there is no drop you are not going through a metering device. this could be a bad rev. valve or a missing or wrong size orifice. the compressor is working because you have pressure. i would make sure the lines are hooked up properly, then replace the reversing valve.
