    Look at www.onboardair.com, I think they say the sizes on there. I hope that helps.

    I need to clean mine up and get it mounted so any info you have on your install would be helpful. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    go to your local auto parts house and have them convert Four Seasons part number 12908 to whatever they stock for size 8 a/c line or 12910 for size 10 a/c line. if you are working on a unit with a large diameter male threaded tube sticking up vertically from the compressor head plate, that is a tube-o fitting and the flange itself can be replaced with either of the numbers above. the flange fittings in the picture are for size 8 a/c line. fyi- they are not threaded, they are ribbed for a/c line 'push on and crimp' fittings. if they give you any crap, just tell them its on page 361 of the 2002 A/C & HEATER PARTS ILLUSTRATED catalog. the compressors are on page 157 and clutches on 57.

    You have the flair fitting lines from the looks of it...
    You shouldn't have to do anything to them. Just use some good hi temp hose and 2 clamps.

    I have the threaded type and just crammed a 5/8 pipe thread (not sure on the size...yes I put a tapered thread on a strait thread /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif). I just put some pipe tape on there and jammed a brass female reducer on there!...of course I haven't put the stupid thing on the motor yet so who knows but I don't think it will leak.
