I bought a replacement A/C Delco compressor hose for my truck and it's slightly different than factory. The metal portion of the hose coming off the compressor (that goes to the evaporator) is slightly longer and the rubber portion is slightly shorter (everything else is basically identical). Although it is the same length, the inflexibility of the longer metal portion means that the rubber portion now kinks. Is it possible to bend the metal portion to start the bend in the proper direction?
Here are some pics:
The number one A/C diagnostic tool there is- is to know how much refrigerant is in the system- this can only be done by recovering and weighing the refrigerant!!
Just a thought.... 65% of A/C failures in my 3200 car diagnostic database (GM vehicles) are due to loss of refrigerant due to a leak......
How do I bend it without crimping it?
Mount the hose/manifold and then make slight modifications to remove the kink. Small modifications at a time should prevent the possible kinking of the metal section. Just take your time and be very careful.
Should discover that the adjustment does not need to be drastic.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
