    What is the proper name for this tube in my AC system? 86' Regal with a 307.
    I looked on Rockauto and didn't see anything listed that looked like it described this piece.

    You might be able to get one from 4 seasons AC parts.

    I was also thinking that you'd have to find a good used one and clean it up.

    High pressure liquid line. Will need to find someone who makes them. See if you have any custom hose makers in your area. Call a couple of auto parts houses as they probably know someone

    Greg's right. Check your local NAPA auto parts, they usually have someone that can make lines for you...or find a shop that makes hydraulic lines and hoses.

    My liquid line is in decent shape but I was looking for a brand new one since everything else I have is new waiting for when I install them.
    I think most everything I have bought was Four Seasons brand but I did not see this on their site either.

    My suggestion is flush it with denatured alcohol, install new o-rings and re-use it. No need to replace it if it's in good shape.
