Hello everyone I'm going to be buying a compressor valve pretty soon and was wondering how many cans of freon do I need go recharge my system?

Me and a friend will be doing it and I would rather not buy a ac tester kit for this one job. I've heard that I should use roughly 1.5 cans?

There is a label on the hood with the XXX grams in the AC system, then do the math.

Some local auto parts places will rent/loan you the vacuum pump and gauges. Evacuate the system and pull a vacuum on it and refill it with the proper amount. That's the short answer. Might as well add some ultraviolet dye while you're doing that.
