I want to connect my Pulsator up this weekend to my evaporator and condenser but find it difficult to find a way to connect my drain hose from the outlet of the evap/condenser.
The evaporator and condenser have female openings and no tubes extending out for a hose to slide over.
Here's a link to see my evap if it helps: https://www.ackits.com/pc/27-33209-/Dodge98intrepid2-7/27-33209+-+Evaporator+Core
The kit provides a very nice adaptor line with a plastic tip with limited abilities since there are so many different configurations of connections out there (also written in the manual) I know people who commonly do this have various adaptors from salvaged parts to connect but I do not.
I guess I was hoping for another alternative or suggestion I could possibly use to have a safe flushing process. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
PS. Off the subject question - Is it recommended to replace the valve cores for the hi/lo service ports? The ones I removed from my compressor when I rebuilt it didn't appear to look bad at all and I applied a thin film of nylog to the rubber seals before installing them. Just wondering if appearance is a good enough factor is judging servicability... and trying to save an extra $20 for valve cores

Making the assumption that you will be replacing the TXV; you can drill the old one to make it a flushing adapter. Reinstall the clearanced fitting (its not a TXV anymore) and the line set; and you can now use the line set for flushing access. This will also give you a suitable way to attach for the dry air purge. Hope this helps.
Excellent suggestions. Thank you very much for the help. I do plan to replace TXV and Recvr/drier. Thanks again.

I think your valve cores will be fine. Many of them seem to leak (seep) and the solution is to be sure you cap them off; just be sure the o-ring in the cap is in good shape.
