    I have the same set. 4 port Titan Manifold with 3/8 vacuum port. The cap on the right is where you attach the temperature probe lead. FWIW, after setting units and display contrast, the only buttons I ever use on this thing are the refrigerant selection buttons, the power button and the mode button (switchs between actual line temp, SC, SH readings). Not complicated at all. The integrated temperature reading feature is more convenient than using a separate temperature measuring instrument, and the sensor type used is more accurate than K type thermocouples.

    I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these things, even if the one I have were to break tomorrow, which I doubt seriously it will do.

    Yep, it's a chunk of change, but well worth every penny. So far this is the "only" digital instrument purchase that I've felt completely comfortable with.

    Just make sure you have at least 2 sets, one favorite like a digital and one for spare or throwdown set.

    YJ brute 2 with series 41 handles. I also use Yj 60" hoses with ball valves. It's a little bulky but I am happy with them

    How do you like your glycerin filled gauges, i just recently got mine over the winter, only have one flaw, the caps, i just put a little silver tape over top and it does the trick.
