Vintage A/C install

Hi all,

I have 2 questions on the install of this FFR supplied ac system.

1) Can I mount the safety switch directly to the drier or do I have to mount it separately further down the line?

2) When attaching the heater lines to the unit mounted inside the cabin of the car does it matter which line mounts where?

I have mounted it directly to the drier with no issues.
I am pretty sure the lines are different sizes so you cant swap them.

The two heater lines are the same size (as well as the AC low pressure line). I don’t recall noticing that they didn’t say which was which. The one AC high pressure line is he small one of the 4.

Thank you both for your help. I have the a.c. lines figured out but just was not sure if it mattered which line went to which heater line connection. It is a tight fit to get all the lines and wiring in such a small area lol. The joys of the build 😁

Get used to things being a tight fit, especially if you have lots of the options lol!

I really can’t remember if it mattered or not. The instructions should specify. I think I hooked mine up exactly as it said to and I don’t recall scratching my head about where they went. Maybe there was a picture to get an idea?
