LS Swap vintage air install

Hey guys, I just mounted the condenser to my Vintage Air system. I have a few questions. The suction side from the compressor (#10) to bulkhead in firewall gets a service port correct ?? Any other service ports needed ?? The discharge (#8) side from compressor goes to the condenser. The #6 from the drier (liquid line) goes to the #6 in the firewall. Does this #6 liquid line have to be a tube ?? Thx!

Hey Donny, I got your PM. You are right I ordered an extra piece of straight tube that I bent to fit,



I think you want to have a service port somewhere in the high side as well so you can see what your pressures are with the gauges.

I don't think the liquid line has to be rigid but since its not connected to anything that moves it doesn't have to flex.

My high side service port is at the compressor.

You need two service ports. One on each side of the compressor or on the lines connected to them. They should come with the kit.

Liquid line can be flexible hose.

You can run all flexible lines if it works better for you.

Hey Jeff, I just noticed your heater control valve on the inner fender. I believe the servo motor must face down. That would put the black wire connection on the inside towards the engine, not towards the fender. I have heard VA having problems with these heater control valves and I'm not sure this has anything to do with it, but I thought I mention it. Thanks for your help!
