Don't know about the V-8's, but the ports are probably near the compressor at the front right of the engine. That's where my 1991 SE's were.

You will need to remove the engine tray. Interetingly, my mechanic found that his lift blocked the bolts for the tray, so he had to unbolt it FIRST while the lift was in the down posiition, and then raise the car, and reverse the same procedure AFTER filling the system with R 12.

It was also a "two person job" as his helper watched the sight glass at the front of the car while he re-filled the system. Mine took four 12 oz cans, as it was empty. We will see in a while if I have a leak...
