txv external equilizer (Lintern)
Hope someone can help me,
I found a leak on a txv external equilizer today (Lintern Unit), This equilizer is
a hose type 3/8 hose w 1/4 fitting. Anyway the 1/4 fitting has a crack and is leaking.A factory replacement part is not available for awhile and I was thinking of using a short refrigerant hose off of my gauge set until I get the factory part however it is about 4 inches longer then the existing equilizer.
So I guess my question is can u lengthen the txz's equilizer a few inches without causing poor txv operation?
Thanks in advance for all your help
i dont see why not... all the valve needs is the pressure from the outlet of the evap... i have not see this done with a hose... why not pipe it in with some copper and move away from the potential leaks?
Agree. What about a SuperHose? One in my van all the time.

Sorry, I am still a little green
