    bottom of the evap is a service valve 3/8..1/2 can't remember holding most of the freon very dorment just laying inside the barrel.just pull vacs on the 275lb recovery or 50s whatever and suck the liquid out.when your down to gas onlly recover the unit from the same'll need adapters for hoses to get on to the servcie valve..also might consider pressurizing with nitro on top of the condenser..rumor had it years ago charges were twice the tonnage....and they alway leaked probably was leaking as it was being removed and trucked
    "when in doubt...jump it out"
