      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

98 Sub rear air

Recommended Posts

I have a leak in the AC line to the rear a few inches from where the rear hoses connect along the frame. Can I unhook the rear lines and cap the high and low fittings at the frame instead of the recommended and spendy under-the-hood method suggested by radiator/AC guy? My alternatives at this point are to replace the lines with OEM (four lines instead of two) or try a compression fitting to bypass the leak.

You could try it, but with the pressure on the high side getting over 200 psi, I wouldn't trust it. Why don't you convert it to a front A/C only. The high and low side lines for the front only isn't that expensive.

I agree, when it is hot outside, and you are flying down the highway at 70, that compressor is pumping 300+ psi, almost positive any home repair will leak, if not blow apart.

Yup, just get the front air only high and low side lines and your good to go. The reciever drier may be different as well.

If you are still looking for something to convert it to front A/C only, I just did this today with an A/C job the same as what you want to do.

O'Reilly Auto Parts has a kit that includes two plugs for the lines to the rear. The connections that you are going to cap are on the passenger side of the engine compartment just below the dryer.

Part# for the kit is: OTH-691

Vendor# is ATM9699

Transfer Number is: 11166188

Kit includes two plugs(one for high side and one for low side), both o-rings, a decal to let any tech know that the rear is no longer in use, and to adjust refrigerant capacity accordingly.

It covers 96-99 Tahoe/Suburban trucks

Very nice kit to do the job without getting all new lines to convert it to front only.

You might be able to bring this part number to any of the other parts stores to see if they can get it for you.
