Default A/C question

i cant figure out which place to hook up my guage and new tank of freon. its low so i got the guage and the freon for it. theres 2 possible spots to screw it on but dont know what each part is called. i know the compressor is run off the belt, but whats the little radiator called and whats the other part thats by the blower called?
thanks

the 2 hook up spots are high pressure and low pressure lines... the radiator looking thing is the condensor i believe and cant remember what the other piece is...

The radiator type thing is the condenser, the thing by the blower motor is called the evaporator core. as far as where to hook up the gauge, i have no idea

well i figured out the charge on it is fine... now im trying to figure out why my compressor engages/disengages on any setting except off. or is this normal?

i know for a/c and defrost settings it would be doing this but not on the others, any thoughts?
