So my fiero is an 84, and ive noticed that the ac lines connect to two hoses at the top of the engine bay, where as most connect on the bottom of the engine bay, how am i supposed to makes the lines go from these connecting points on top to the ac compressor?

First of all, I think its one or two screws are holding it on at the firewall. I used the stock OEM AC lines from a 2000 Bonneville. But needed some tweeking, so it wasnt touching the engine. I beleave most OEM AC lines will work as long as its the proper length and should have the same connections (probubley not all).

My 84 lines don't look like any other cars lines though. They rout up from the compressor to the firewall then back down behind th head sheild. My lines are like quarter circle shaped from top to bottom, where as most are a straight line. I can post pics when I get home, but the routing is different.

they aren't straight connections like most, they are 90 degree angles.

Bump? Anyone know how to do ac in an 84? I feel like this has been done before but I can find anything on it.
