    Default A/C Orifice Tube / accumulator

    guys,
    where would the a/c orifice tube be located on my 1990 k-1500 4x4 with 5.7 v-8 ?

    and is there anything special about swapping out the accumulator thats on the firewall ?

    thanks

    The orifice tube is located in the metal line junction on the pass side inner fender. Make sure you get it nice and tight when you put it in..
    as to the acumulator. No nothing special
