1990 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Question: Air not cold

replaced compressor flushed the lines new accumulator and orifice filter added 2 cans r134 still not cold gage is reading about 50 psi -
Answer 1
2 cans of 134a does not sound like enough charge for the a/c system on your Suburban. There is usually a label under the hood stating the charge amount - often found on the top of the accumulator which you have just replaced. If you have rear a/c that will require more refrigerant that front a/c only. You will need to find out what the proper "charge" amount for you a/c system is. Once the refrigerant level is correct then you can check the system performance. -
Answer 2
did you vaccum the system to remove air before you charged? If not it could be reading 50 psi because air is trapped in the system along with the 134a. -
