Yeah, in the investigatory phase of this at the present time. I may give in and spent time on the phone to find where I can get these crimped and I'llprobably also want them to do the vacuum and charging.I think these might require more than a hand tool to get a good leak-free line...
What compressor are you connecting to?
What A/C unit did you end up with?Planning for my AC install
Could Hydraulic shop crimp those for you?What A/C unit did you end up with?
I know most of them will rent you a hand held crimper that works with their hose and fittings, you'll need to know exactly what fittings you have and use the correct crimper or you'll have issues. FYI the Parker fittings and hose that came in my Restomod kit are a different size than the Parker fittings and hose our local fitting store sells and every one of my hoses developed a leak at some point from using the incorrect crimper.
Specialty shop? We have a Tubes N Hoses locally, looks like they have a lot of them: System LocationsThey take different dies to crimp A/C lines and they are specific to the brand from what I was told.
