I've got a set coming for my v8.

looking online there Seems there is some confusion on the final torque I've read 65 lb/ft and others say 85 lb/ft final torque?

Cheers

65 ft/lb or 85 Nm, roughly the same torque. I do them in 3 stages, 40, 55, 65 ft/lb.

Looking good but I do have one question. Did your AC work? Although the fatter hose is the low pressure side, so when the AC is on it will be down to around 2.6 bar (38psi), when not running it will be at a static pressure of around 6 bar (90psi) and I wouldn't expect a Jubilee clip to be able to hold that.

Oh yes I had a moment of idiocy when I first got it and I plastered red conduit over everything, that jubilee clip is only loosely holding the red shyte on..

And no the A/C does not work, it never has seems it leaks from somewhere, it had a new condenser a few years ago the drier looks very corroded so i imagine it leaks from out of that..

I did find when I was doing the heads that the ac line that attaches to the bulkhead, the bolt could be tightened 1/4 turn, so could be that too?

dunno, would like to have it up and running but to be fair the HVAC needs a full recon, new blend motors etc etc..

Change the seals while you have easy access to the bulkhead fitting ? I recently found a leak behind the compressor clutch on mine. It gradually lost pressure over 3-4 weeks, but I could not find the leak until I was checking the clutch !!
