2002Z28, you have a couple of PM's from me, but I haven't heard anything back. Have you shipped yet? Refunded the core charge? Could you email me at darbysan76@gmail.com and let me know the status. Got the lift tied up, and trying to plan ahead.

Sorry Darbysan,
You have my email if you need anything else. I had a friend send them since I've been on vacation down in the Keys... You should get them any day if you haven't already.

PM me your address and what options you want. If you send cores, just drop a check in the box. Otherwise use PayPal and add the couple dollars for covering their fees.

Pretty much it.

I'm hoping you are still making these or still have a supply of them.

I have an 86 GT that I swapped a 3800SC Series II into that I need lines for. The twist is that the 3800SC went from a 2002 Bonneville into a 93 Bonneville then to me so I don't know for sure which compressor it has or if the fittings are the same on the compressors. I am using a reprogrammed 2002 ECU so I would need the pressure switch and will be replacing the o-rings and dryer to use R134A. If you are still making them, I would like to have a set made. I can PM more detail and pictures if you like.

I have several to make this week but I'm hoping to get them all shipped by this weekend. Send me a picture of the hose you have connected to the compressor and I'll be able to tell if my normal manifolds will fit.
The prices and details are still the same as they always were. See page 1. If you can send me the Fiero side of the hose as a core I'd appreciate it. I'm running pretty low on them. It will also save you $30.

I'm relieved that you are still making them and hopeful that your manifolds will work with my compressor.

Now that I look at my Fiero hose, it seems to be a different version and won't work on my car. It must have come off of a parts car that I had and I can't find the original one from my car. I have attached pictures of the Fiero hose and the compressor. The compressor has a block off plate on it and I'm hoping its still good. Can you use my hose for another build? If not, my buddy has a CNC machine and offered to try make an adapter. Who knows, maybe there is a market for an adapter :-). If you can PM me your paypal info, I will send $180 for the setup with the switch port and we can figure the core out afterward so it doesn't hold you up. Thank you!

That's an 84 hose. There's not much demand for them but I'll still give you $30 for them. There's not much "supply" for them either.

Is the compressor a Series2 3800 compressor? Do you know what the donor car was?

More than likely my normal set will be perfect but the more info you have the more sure we can be. Your car's not an 84 I assume...

Ah, 84... now I remember... I have some parts from my buddies shop where they put a Lambo kit on an 84 Fiero chassis and they dropped in an 88 2.8 cradle. That must be where it came from.

My car is an early 86 GT with the Muncie 4spd. Now I wonder where the one I took off went.

2002z28ssconv;

Do you also do A/C hoses for a 3.4 DOHC swap? I have a new connector that goes to the A/C and the connectors that go to the frame lines but need to get the lines between built with the High pressure switch installed.

I also have two other A/C lines:
- one for 86 and
- one for 87 4 cyl
that would come as cores

I thought the 87 4 cyl would work against the 3.4 DOHC compressor but it does not.

Thanks much
Don

Thank you so much 2002z28ssconv!!!

I had the opportunity to install your fantastic AC Lines into my 2004 GTP L32 Fiero (with no fitment issues) last week in New Jersey...just in time for my car to be loaded into an enclosed trailer down to Sunny South Florida. The car came off the trailer to ambient temperatures in excess of 90 degrees and it was awesome to hit that AC button and have ice cold AC for the very first time in 13 years of owning the car!

Excellent craftsmanship with great communication and fast shipping.

Thanks again!

I can do the 3.4 DOHC too. The only thing I need to know is the length of the hoses and what angle the connector is at when it attaches to the 3.4 compressor.

If you can send me those Fiero lines for core that would be fantastic. I just have one left right now.

Send me an email and we can discuss how to make sure they get twisted in the right orientation. I might be able to find a 3.4 DOHC in a local salvage yard and that would help too. But I'm sure we can succeed.

I just bought a new AC Delco hose assembly for my car and it doesn`t have an inline pressure switch.
I have a 99 engine with the V5 compressor. My new harness has the wiring for the computer controlled switch where
the old one didn`t. Dan, told me how to disable the wire but I left it on the harness.
I have to have the Fiero ends off of my old hose attached to the new hose and if I decide to hook the wires back up where do you
get that inline port.
Thanks

Thanks, I think for now I will just use the old way that my original hose was.
With the heat here in Texas I don`t think my compressor ever cycles off, but I may be wrong.
I`m getting less than 200lb on the high side anyway.
If I replace my compressor in the future I may hit you up for a port if you still have any.

Now that my vacation is over and I have sourced the parts needed, I am ready to make a batch of custom AC lines for running the 3800 Series 2 or 3 AC compressor in the Fiero.

If you send your Fiero hoses and 3800 hoses there will be no core charge. If I have to furnish the Fiero or 3800 aluminum sections there will be a core charge to cover that cost.
If you just want basic hoses that connect the compressor to the rest of the Fiero AC system, the price will be $85 (plus applicable core) shipped in the continental USA.

Send me your aluminum sections. I'll crimp new rubber between them and send them back.

*** 9/27/15 Edit *** Changing the way I do this just a bit...
1) I am now pre-building these, that way when I get an order I can ship the same or next day. I have so many things going on right now that I can't stop everything to work on AC hoses at a moment's notice. Some people have had to wait for me to get a chance to build/send their hoses over the past year. Everyone was patient and nobody really complained but in order to send your set without delay, I'm prebuilding them now and just refunding the core charge when yours come in. Unless you specifically say so, you won't be getting back the exact cores you send me.

2) Regular PayPal fees are 2.9% + $0.30: On $175, they take out over $5.50. If you consider me to be "a friend" you can send it without a fee, otherwise these are the different payment amounts.

Set of hoses with switch port, including core charge for both ends: $180. (125+20+30+5)

As always, checks, money orders and such are still an option.






This is the way the old school swaps were done. The AC will function but not at peak efficiency. Running the compressor under this condition can cause compressor failure. The pressure switch on the accumulator/dryer will turn the compressor off if the pressure builds too high or drops too low but this is a safety switch and the operating range of the switch is higher and lower than what the system is designed to work in on a daily basis. Does this method work? Yes. Is it the best way? No. Did people run with this setup for many years? Yes. Some people who swap 3800s into other peoples' cars still do it this way today.

Over the past few years people have started wiring in the 3800's pressure sensor from the high side of the system. It is wired to the 3800 PCM and the PCM turns the compressor on and off for peak efficiency.
I will also be offering custom hoses that will include a port incorporated into the High-side hose. The original pressure sensor screws onto the port and seals with an O-ring just like the 3800 did from the factory. The price for this version will be $125 (plus applicable core) shipped in the continental USA.

The core charge for the 3800 line will be $20.
The core charge for the 85-88 Fiero line will be $30.
8/25/14 Update -
The new fittings have finally arrived.

I can now supply these too.


If you have factory hoses that just need new rubber, I can do that for $85 shipped in the continental USA.
When I priced this out before buying the crimper, NAPA would have charged ~$120 just for 2 hoses and 4 crimps.

All prices include shipping to the continental USA. Other locations can contact me for personalized quote.

Basic Fiero 3800 AC hoses - $85
Enhanced Fiero 3800 AC hoses - $125
Core charge for Fiero AC hose end - $30
Core charge for 3800 AC hose end - $20
Refurbished Fiero hoses - $85

Please post or PM if you'd like a set and say which kind you want.


<<<DISCLAIMER>>> Before you work on your AC system, please do your research and educate yourself on how to finish the job in a safe manner, in a way that will last for the long term.

Replace your expansion valve inside the orifice tube. They're available for about a dollar at any auto parts store. Anyone who works on their AC without replacing the expansion valve is wasting time and money.

If you are changing from R-12 to R-134 or if you have any reason to believe that the system has been contaminated, the dryer accumulator should be replaced prior to recharging the system.

If you have any reason to believe that the system has been contaminated, flush all components that aren't being replaced.

By selling these hoses, I'm just supplying a piece of the puzzle. Anybody that modifies a car from factory configuration by putting in an engine from another car, already has to assume responsibility for when things don't work like they did from the factory. By offering the enhanced version people have the option to incorporate the 3800's sensor into the system and let the PCM control the compressor.

I'm also working on a design to add switching into the AC line by the frame rail that will serve as a cycling switch, giving those without the PCM wiring built into their harness, the ability to cycle the compressor at lower pressures.
