    This is exactly what I also do. Not only does it make your job easier, but the next person's also. I don't think I've done a direct TXV to distributor in 25 years, mine would be ugly if tried at this point.

    You all work to hard! Buy a new distributor, tubing and couplings. First solder 12" tubes in distributor and couplings then the valve all on a pipe vise in the comfort of being on the ground not standing on your head and a stub on the liquid side. Imp cut all the dist tubes and liquid. For some reason it's easier to solder up 3/8 tubes than the whole dist. Your head won't hurt as bad or your body and save time.
