    if it is not the low loss fittings, then fairly simple.

    remove the core depressor, not threaded in and can just be pulled out with needle nose pliers, or "unscrewed" and then pulled out.

    remove the seal with whatever you have small enough to do the job; screwdriver, awl, razor blade, etc.

    I had never done it before a week ago, company used to just replace the hoses. Now with the economy, they decide to repair first and see if that will work.

    Isn't it better to ask then to screw it up?

    I use either a control screw driver or a pick. even a paper clip works..

    Have fun the first time i did it, It sucked but after one it is easy..

    If he didn't, I would have shortly. I notice my old school gauges, now relegated to r22 duty, are getting pretty chewed up.
