    Thank you. For the life of me I can't find a dryer anywhere. It's not by the evaporator coils by radiator nor on any lines I see. That's why I'm not sure about this A/C system. If it's factory. Most dryers look the same Correct....(Like a 16oz. tall boy) some have sight glass on top.

    Those are receiver driers
    You can also have accumulator tank driers. Chevy does them alot.
    Driers are most effective in the liquid line from condenser to txv (expansion valve).
    Drier itself isn't very big
    Car system can get by with one 1 1/2 inches round by less then 2 inches long.
    The condenser coil is by the radiator
    Evaporator coil is inside the car looks like a heater core.

    Looking at your picture
    You have been converted to 134a
    The drier is in the suction line
    Big line from firewall to compressor the place where the blue service valve cap is

    Oh, yeah, I got confoozled (which happens occasionally); the valve looks a lot like the one that was on the Grand Marq parts that were stolen, so I wonder if there would be compatibility between the two lines (intermediate to '79 vs. 'downsized' full size from '79)?

    Well, I just learned something. Here I've been dinking around with Eighties and newer systems with big accumulators/receiver-driers, and never thought that small can was one.

    Howdy all, I'm looking for 78 A/C line. This line is approx. 38 inches long and is about the dia. of an ink pen (1/2").

    Most hydrolic hose shops can make one for you.
    Try Parker first.
