Hi guys,
does anybody know exactly what set of AC hoses run from the AC compressor to the aluminium cylinder and radiator on an 88 Avanti ??

They were built on an 88 Monte carlo chassis but that does not mean that this part is the same. My hose set has a leak at one of the Aluminium joints and I would like to order another hose set. The part on Napa's web site is not rerally the same as what is on my car. It is still factory original and there is an Avanti ragtop on ebay at the moment item no 190093418950 that shows the pipes coming from the back of the compressor clearly enough.

Your helup would be appreciated. All my other parts are awaiting shipment in a container I have moving towards the UK in the next few weeks
Thanks
Greg

If I am reading my well-worn Chevy parts book correctly, that hose is GM part number 14081400 and is referred to as "fitting, complete with hoses". It was used on 85-88 Monte Carlos, and was still available from GM about a year ago for $140 retail.
