I'm looking for the aluminum suction hose that runs in front of the AC condenser at the front of the car. It attaches to the suction hose at the right side that attaches to the compressor.

I'm afraid I don't have a full picture of it. It's 5/8" diameter aluminum with black foam insulation.

I would also like an 88503-14060 Evaporator Pressure Regulator (EPR) Valve.

Let me know what you would like for this and also what it would cost to ship to Canada V4C 7S5

Thanks

Dale

You should really buy the EPR valve new. Most of the old ones leak by now. It's still available surprisingly for a reasonable price.

Good point. I never suspected that this would be available. I will do that.

Now the aluminum suction tube is another story. It definitely is no longer available.

Thanks for the input.

It does not have to be hard line, So you could make your own line. Go to coldhose.com for A/C parts

That's true. It gets rid of the need to custom bend aluminum tube and braze/weld on adapters. However, my car is quite original so I want to keep it as stock as possible.
If at all possible I would like to have the stock part to keep it looking original.

It may come down to that however. I had not seen this company before. A lot of AC companies don't sell into Canada. This one does so I really appreciate you pointing it out.

If you don't want the big, bulky EPR valve you can put a temp sensor inside the evaporator box right against the core, and then use a little controller to cycle the compressor on and off when the core gets close to freezing. That is the way ALL modern cars work, and it simplifies the plumbing and increases the efficiency. A good standalone ECM can also do this, and turn the compressor off when you are at WOT.

I was planning on doing an A/C delete on my car over the winter. I can get a jump start on it now and take the hose off and sell it to you if you're still looking for it. My car is an '82. Is the A/C system the same through the years?
