Hello, my name is ***** ***** thank you for using just answer. Its sounds as if you are trying to connect r-12 fittings to r-134? I have a set of r-12 gauges with adapters, i believe i got them thru mac tools. You should be able to find r-12 to r-134 adaptor ends to use your existing gauges online. Hope this helps, thank you.
