[DML] AC clutch running continuously

I just installed John Hervey's spliced AC lines along
with new high pressure hub, AC orifice, and
Accumulator/Drier. Vacuumed the system for 20 minutes
last night and checked it this morning to find the
vacuum was holding. 

I decided to start charging the system and put in one
small 12oz can of R134A (340mg). After putting this
in, the pressure gauge on the lowside is reading
~45psi (high on the nominal reading and low
overcharged according to the gauge). In addition, the
compressor never cycles and pressure reading stays
constant at 45, all on one small can. 

Any idea why this may be? According to the service
manual the compressor inlet screen should be checked
for clogs. I don't recall see anything when the system
was open, but admittedly the possibility of the inlet
screen being clogged wasn't on my mind.

The air coming out of the vent is slightly cooler than
ambient. And I can see a clear liquid sloshing around
in the high pressure hub sight glass.

Thanks, I know it's a little late in the season for
this lol
