1987 Eagle Limited AC Expansion Valve
« on: February 17, 2018, 03:10:38 AM »
My mechanic says I need a new expansion valve. The replacements we can find are 90degree set ups and he says mine is straight (180 degrees). I can not locate any straight ones. Any help greatly appreciated.

Wonder what you have?   The AMC parts book shows both the factory and dealer-installed A/C systems to have valves with fittings 90-degrees from each other.   Have a pic of yours??   That may give us a clue.   Just for reference, the factory part number for the factory A/C valve is J3728053 (unobtanium from any of my usual sources).   The dealer-installed American Air version is J8126987 (that one is easy to find - crosses to Four Seasons 38608).   Good luck with it.

Thanks. My service manual also shows the 90 degree. I have asked him to pull it out and get me a picture and any part numbers on it. Thanks for the cross references.
