    in heat mode, remember the low side is the common suction port.

    It may be tricky to a newcomer.. are you sure you have your hoses hooked up correctly?
    you want your low side gauge on the suction line between the reversing valve and compressor, there should be a port a few inches from the compressor on the suction side..
    Put your high side gauge on the larger "vapor" (suction in a/c) line.
    If you still experience like pressures.. switch it to a/c mode and put your gauges on the hi and lo sides and see if you get your difference or achieve a better compression ratio. If your still not pumping you may have shot valves or a bad reversing valve...
