Hi all,

I stopped making a/c hoses last year due to the parts needed to fabricate them being discontinued. After calling warehouses across the country, I stumbled upon 9 pieces, so I can make 9 hoses. I received all the pieces yesterday, so I am ready to make them. A few of the hoses are already spoken for and I plan to run off the batch on Monday. These use my custom made 3800 compressor end, so you don't have to provide a 3800 hose. I'll post up a pic on Monday.

Price for the hose will be in the $150 range give or take $20. I have to go over the material receipts to verify final price. I can offer a $20 discount if you send me the Fiero end.

These hoses will most likely not work with WCF headers, but I cannot be certain of this. This is just what I have been told in the past.

Dave

Parts are in and I made a few hoses. These use a custom 45 degree swivel end on the Grand Prix compressor. It does have the port for the pressure switch. The switch is not included. I am in need of a few Fiero (driver's side) ends. I will email and pm all that have asked and then I will post up how many that I have for sale within the next day. I am limited to a total of 9 as the pieces I use to make the compressor ends and pressure ports are no longer made.

Does anyone know the part number for the switch ? This goes on the pressure port, I don't have a clue. Any links on here with an example ?

Currently, they are all spoken for. I will contact the company that makes the two custom pieces for this and twist their arms to see if they have any left, or if they can make another batch.

Why do u use the custom ends over just using the stock 3800 compressor hose ends? Just curious..

The compressor side 3800 end is a real pain in the ass to fit in the crimping tool. I normally have to bend it almost to the point of kinking it. Then bend it back. Also, when using the stock Fiero starter with the 3800, the a/c hose doesn't fit very well with the 3800 a/c muffler. I can make the hoses twice as fast and with less chance of leaks with the custom end.
The last reason is due to where I run my coils and ignition wires. It is just a better fit for the way I design my swaps.

Steve,

You are on my list as you are the main reason I decided to run off a batch.

I'll double check the amount of ends I have left today, and do the final contact for the first reserved before I go to the people 2nd in line.

All are sold out. I may run another batch if I can find a few of the pieces that are no longer being produced, but I'll have to do some searching.

The high pressure port and the compressor end were the two parts that were discontinued. You can use the factory 3800 end for the compressor, but it isn't as clean looking. I managed to find a dozen compressor ends that were in a warehouse in Texas last year and bought them all....and used them all. The high pressure port fitting was discontinued, but I found a few other companies that had them until stock was depleted.

Ever consider just using junkyard parts and TIG welding on the new hose crimp ends which you can still get? A used A/C pressure sensor port can be welded onto an existing line easily enough.

We can do that and I did think of that as a solution, but right now I do not have the time to dedicate to running off a batch. I haven't even looked at my own car in 3 months....which I really want to finish.

Sorry to revive and old thread from the dead.... I realize Dave has moved on from Fieros- I have a set of these lines and was wondering if anyone can tell me whether it works with a 3800 compressor and WCF headers? (are they long enough)??

Please reply only if you are certain,

Also, there is no muffler with Dave's AC line. Is this an issue?

I bought a new compressor for a 99 Regal and plan to install that.

I do have a message in to 2002z28ssconv to purchase his lines in case this one doesn't work

*** Edit- Dave replied, doesn't think it will fit. ***

I am not trying to promote someone else's product in someones thread, but it looks like the last time these hoses were offered here was just over 5 years ago.

I purchased a set from Chuck of Central Florida Fieros. I can vouch for him a hundred times over. He is a great person, great to work with, and his workmanship is excellent. You can get the hoses in HIS MALL THREAD.

Hey John

All good, no worries. I just ordered one from Charles this morning.

Will probably sell Dave's hose to someone who needs one locally and does not have WCF headers.
