What tool for high side shrader valve replacement?

On a 90 RS Camaro, Im having problems getting the high side schrader valve to seal. The shrader valve tool that I have will fit on the low side, but not the high side. It appears to be much deeper in.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I used a tool found in a special kit for these at school.

Re: What tool for high side shrader valve replacement?

anyway you can get me a picture?

I dont need the real expensive ones that allow you to pull the valve without evacuating the system. I already have an empty system. I just need the tool to remove the valve and to replace it. Nothing fancy, I just dont know what I need.

Re: What tool for high side shrader valve replacement?

If anyone ever runs into the same problem, the tool required is one for R134a schrader valve.

Even though the car is R12 and came from the factory R12, the low side schrader is the only one that a R12 tool will fit. The high side requires the R134a tool, even though it doesnt have the R134a quick connect connection.

One of the odd things that happens over the years I guess.
