I'm aware of the fitting type, usually they have a screw on cap like you would find on the tires. Well I can first start off by telling you that those types of valves you and I have are known for leaking, mine even leaked and it's so low that the compressor cannot kick on because of the safety pressure switches. Well anyways I would just evac the system oil that valve a little and then try to fill it up a little bit, you might get lucky. But if no go then you probably would need to replace that line, and first hand experience I can tell you that would cost a little amount of money because it's pre-bent. I could if you want get you a oil used line from another truck, it's a gamble of the same issue happening but it's worth a shot and I can tell you the part I would give you would still be 90% cheaper than any store, dealer, retailer. But if you need any help or part numbers anything at all just name it and I'll try my best, I too and A/C less until I can round up 170 bucks to have my system evaced and charged. and again I too have a leak mines so small it takes years to leak out. so I'm really burning my money but, A/C is essential, especially in the south with all the bugs and humidity.
