In the process of renewing my AC system I removed the orifice tube to discover 'Black Death'.
I purchased an in-line filter to catch any left over debris in the system. Replaced the two long lines, compressor hoses, and condenser. I cut the orifice tube section out to add in the filter and discovered all was to short. I will put the filter somewhere else.
Got a replacement.
The part of the original line that threads onto the evaporator had a standard '0' ring. The replacement one uses a captured '0'ring
Anybody know what the heck is going on here? Which one is correct. These are the 'MALE' ends. How can I tell which female end is on my evaporator?
I had a vacuum leak, this might be the problem as the incorrect tube line was used by a PO?
