Thank all of you for the help and advice, nice to find communities like this.  Moondog, I see the fitting you are talking about. Dad and my uncle didnt do ac work, if I recall was filled in the mid to late 70s the last time.  The ac guy I talked to said all he would be able to do is vaccume test, will find out why.  It was a small service station, full service, lube, oil changes, tires and batteries, kinda like Gasoline Allhey! Also any tricks to getting wiring cover off the compressor?

the compressor covers rubber gasket is probably just cemented to the case/housing by decades of dirt, heat & gunk, I see that you've removed the mounting screw at the center already, just use a flat blade screwdriver & pry around the edges, it should pop off once you peel off the gasket from the case.  pull it away carefully as the wires going into the protected area are quite short & probably also brittle with age, but if you are rewiring it, it shouldn't be an issue.

The million dollar question, will the door seal be enough.  i checked the door seal and because the door was tweaked by a break in attempt, it is not as tight as i thought. By adding a 1/4 inch additional weatherstripping it definitely seals better. I am going with Jims comment somewhere go with the simple stuff first, new wiring harness arrives friday, so will plug it all in and see what happens.  If it still doesnt get cold, the to the shop for hotshot 2. Ah the fun of old stuff!

Picked up my compressor this morning, recharged with hot shot 2, wouldnt do r-12, and a new overload breaker. It is pulling the temp down nice, cold beers with dinner drinking  thanks for all the help and advice.

One last thing when i pulled the cooling deck, the thermostat capillary tube was mounted to the evaporator sheet metal, but based on what i read here looks like it should be free floating in the air flow so that is what i did. Using a freezer thermometer, it is pulling down to 20 degrees in the first 4 hours or so, but not shutting off until i turn the thermostat all the way left until it clicks.  Normal, give it time, or probably bad thermostat?

       There are 2 kinds of thermostats, air flow and contact. Try moving the cap tube back to where you found it.

Thanks moondog.  I think it just needs dialing in.  The tip is pretty much the same diameter as the tibe, and it is starting to behave better.  I am gonna let it go a day or two, and if i am not happy will move it.
