dual orffice tube

Bill2 on Mon May 25, 2009 11:36 PM User is offline

Year: 1992
Make: chevy
Model: suburban
Refrigerant Type: 134a

Just installed new condenser, manifold hose, liquid line and compressor. After recharging cooling was really poor. I just realized that this new condenser had a office tube installed in it. Factory one did not. I did not notice this until after charge. Is this most likely my problem because I now have two installed inline. Also the factory condenser was 1/2 inch th icker should I try to find one of same size. Is this condenser maybe the wrong one. Truck has front and rear system. Also has been converted to 134a. What would two office tubes inline do? Sorry for all the questions any help would be greatly appreciated

Two orifice tubes is one to many. Remove the condenser mounted OT and evacuate and recharge.

The Suburbans with rear AC use a tube thats in a connection below the air intake and battery. Won't work too well with one in the condensor
