You'll have to get a hose shop to just replace the rubber part of the hose while reusing your old metal ends.   Very common procedure - I'd hope there is a shop around somewhere that can do it for you.   I use a shop in Austin for mine.

There are 3 different hoses listed in the parts book, depending on if factory or American Air; and which ends are on the hoses.

Just find a place to re-hose your old one.

I agree with this recommendation.  An AC shop should be able to replace the bad part of your hose pretty easily. Good luck!

Oh man, DUH, I just remembered I have a parts car that's basically identical LOL I'm going to go parts hunting on it tomorrow! I'm quite sure it has A/C although I haven't taken a part off it since last year.

I'm sure there is somewhere in town that could re-do a hydraulic hose. Mine is factory A/C, 86.

Just noticed that. Last time I checked, which was years ago, I didn't find any and so assumed they still weren't available. Just bought one.

So today I tried adding Red Tek 12a to my A/C system. Long story short as soon as the compressor kicked on I got a face full of refrigerant because there is a cut in the AC hose from the compressor to the condenser.

I looked on RockAuto but can't see the line. How do I get a replacement line? Does anyone have a part # ? I am in Canada so would prefer a source here to buy from. If I have a part # that could help me track a part down.

Worst case I'm thinking I can go to a local AC shop and see if they have some ideas....

Thanks

I also got a set of the RareParts ball joints. I decided that they just used a Moog upper joint (# k3082) with a pressed on sleeve to adapt it to the larger bore of the lower ball joint. It is the same taper just bigger. Along with the adapter plate. If you could make an adapter plate and find the correct taper adapter it could be cheap to replace the lower ball joints.

A quick check says there are quite a few suppliers of the high-pressure hose. Without checking RockAuto I'm sure they have one too.

Edited: I checked anyways and yes the high pressure and low pressure hoses are still available.

I have an 87 Eagle with a burst power steering pump hydraulic fluid hose. Are these available anywhere?

Hmmmmm.  I wonder if he was comparing pre-1981 Spirit seat frames; which do carry a different part number than the Eagle seat frames.
