Manifold and gauges seem of decent quality, although as one reviewer mentioned, the valves don't have a good solid feel.
The High and low-pressure couplers fit on my FORD A/C charge ports fine, BUT NO-GO on my Chrysler products. They would push on, but I could not get the locking rings to seat. The high-side coupler was too tall and interfered with nearby plumbing in my 2004 Dodge Mini-Van.
All-in-All meets my expectation for Chinese made tools. Did I mention the almost useless 30-day warranty?

    Comments about Interdynamics Professional Manifold Gauge & Hose Set:

    These gauges are used when charging automotive AC systems with R134A refrigerant. You will need to purchase a tap separately, if you do not already have one. The gauges work as they should, and I had no problems charging my AC system after replacing Schraeder valves. The kicker, however, is that once you assemble the gauges, they do not fit back into the blow-molded case unless you disassemble them. I don't want to constantly have to do that because it wears on the o-rings and seals, and not to mention that it's annoying and time consuming to do so.

    Most people will probably leave them hanging up in their garage so this is not a big deal, but I usually help friends and family with their cars, and having a case for the gauges makes transporting them a lot easier. So, if you want to make the case more reusable after putting the gauges together, take a utility knife and cut out the inner layer of plastic that has all of the molds. Once you do that, they will fit. Just be careful not to crimp any of the hoses when putting them into the larger area.

                Bought these to trouble shoot and ultimately repair my car air conditioning...this happened to be for my 2006 Honda Odyssey. As the job progressed the final fix was replacing the cores or. I was able to use these gauges to trouble shoot the system, vacuum the system i.e. Pulled a negative and then checked for leaks and ultimately service the system properly. Since purchasing this set a year ago it have been able to check and add refrigerant as needed for my personal vehicles. I believe the purchase is a good idea...read mandatory...if you plan on doing any automotive air-conditioning work. The case is an added bonus to keep stuff organized and comes with a quick pressure check guide that is helpful....good lick
