    I have installed a 97' 5.9 magnum from a ram 1500 in a 73' Dart Swinger---used all the 97' accessories (power steering pump, alternator & compressor)---got the PS pump and ALT figured out but not quite there with the compressor----any body figure out how to get hoses that work???

    There's a place called Engineered Sales near where I work in North Kansas City. They can take your ends from your compressor, the ends from your evaporator and receiver/dryer, and make you custom hoses to adapt one to the other, in any length you want.

    I highly doubt that they're local to you in Idaho, but you might be able to call them or find a local office.

    I have heard that some O'reilly's can do this as well, but never verified. Maybe RRR can chime in.

    My local A/C guy aluminum brazed the fittings on the shortened stock tube manifold. The materials are available on-line to aluminum solder and the fittings are common A/C fittings. Check the picture.
