I only have a low pressure side gauge. Do I need to get another to check if that's what's happening?

The other thing is that I can FEEL the the loss of power when clutch for the compressor engages --even in 5th gear. I thought that wasn't supposed to happen anymore (all my cars have been classics before now)
