I have a 1987 chev pic-uo. The liquid line at the orific tube was frosting
up and the compressor began making noise so I went out and bought a new compresor,accumulator, and orifice tube
I put it all together and it still wouldnt get cool, I must have put the tube in in the wrong direction, so I recovered and took it apart again and when I tried to pull the tube out, I got a piece 1/4 inch long out, and that was it . I tried to blow it out with nitrogen but I didnt see it come out.
looking down the piece of tubing going to the evap I cant see anything that looks like and orifice tube. There is a disk in the tubing that is drilled out in the center
that would block my lost piece from going further, but where did the rest of that orifice tube go
