I would like to replace my condenser with a parallel flow, the problem is my o tube is condenser mounted.What are my options for condenser replacement ?
Can I move the o-tube?maybe get a repair tube kit and put it in the liquid line?Has anybody ever changed to a txv from ccot ? any suggestions?????????

Do you have the dimples for an OT in the line near the evaporator? Sometimes there is a choice where to put the OT. They put it near the condenser so the hissing noise from the tube isn't as loud inside the cabin. I'm assuming it is front air only. If you have dual air only the front evaporator has an OT, and it must be after the branch to the rear, it won't be at the condenser.

Its front air only, also I've changed the o -tube before, in the condenser. I've never checked to see if the evap has dimples. I don't know if I'll be able to tell the evap tube appears to be slightly mangled. Maybe I eavp from another year model will work in its place. It seems to me a condenser Mount O tube wouldn't be very efficient

update ..... successfully moved o tube to evaporator, had to put small notch in it to make it fit .also made a heater core vent temps stay much colder during long idle times
