1969 A/C expansion valve install question

Does the coiled up copper wire get routed somewhere or does it stay next to the valve ? All the under hood components were missing and I'm working from scratch. I have every thing replaced now and am just trying to tie up loose ends. Thanks for any help Frank

Re: 1969 ac expansion valve install question

You probably have an aftermarket TEX if you have a lot of capillary tube. No problem though. Just coil it up. Keep it away from the exhaust manifolds and engine The sensing bulb mounts where the suction side comes out of the top of the evap case. Mount the bulb just outside the case at the 3 O'oclock position on the tube. Make sure the sensing bulb is flat against the tube, wrap it with insulation, real good. You dont want the heat of the engine compartment to influence the operation of the TEX. Heres the stuff ricks sells.

Parkbrau, thanks for your help, after I read your reply I went over to the garage and found an extra evaporater housing and saw exactly what you described, I also noticed the heater relays on the evap. housing that the guy I bought mine from didn't put on, so I guess tomorrow I'll be doing that, thanks again for your help, I may have ac just in time for winter

It gets clamped to the evaporator outlet (The line heading back to the compressor).

If you have an Assembly Instruction Manual see UPC C60 sheets. Shows without any extra tubing in sheet D1, in sheet D3 it shows with an excess coil just above the valve top and toward the 3 o'clock position.
