(1) Air Conditioner Accumulator With Compressor Hose
This is the air conditioning accumulator for your 1986-93 Mustang LX, GT or Cobra.It is a holding tank that is located between the high pressure and low pressure side of an air conditioning system. The purpose of the accumulator is to store and release any excess build up of the refrigerant. They also contain a moisture absorbing filter to remove moisture from the refrigerant as it waits in the accumulator, before it flows through the system again.

The line and accumulator are well made BUT, I had to cut a section away to make it fit my car. Highly recommend checking your old line where it goes into the pump to see if it is half moon or completely round to the end of line. PS All the parts are stock on my car in the A/C area. No aftermarket A/C pump issue seeing as it is stock. Perhaps there were different pumps used by Ford but I don't think so.
We apologize that you ran into problems installing this A/C Hose. Depending on the A/C manifold used, some lines encounter clearance issues and others do not. Unfortunately this is the only design of Replacement A/C line available in the market right now. We strive to offer the best products available to get the job done and are constantly looking for ways to improve upon our product offering. Please expect a call from a customer service representative about the matter shortly.

I bought this exact product from a local auto part store for my 1990 Mustang GT with Factory installed AC. The metal end of the hose that goes into the compressor is perfectly round. It's the only way they come.
I had to grind a notch across almost 50% of this metal end to match the curve of the original hose I took off. It was a small pain in the butt but not too complicated. The hard part was trying to keep the metal shavings out of the new hose lol. I figured out a rag stuffed in it works pretty good.
It's not the fault of the seller, or the product itself, that it needs to be modified. It's still a high quality product.
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
