What Chris said........I was sworn to secrecy. Not original no. Not NOS either. Sorry not more help but have to keep my word. I'll post some pics in a minute.
Steve, thank you for that drier backasswards observation....I didn't install it myself.....I haven't used the A/C much since it's been installed (Winter). So is it the intake and output lines that your are talking about that need to be switched?Yep I get the secrecy part and hold out hope that someone throws me a bone sometime in the future, but I will say that it looks like you've installed the drier backwards which would render it inoperable.

In regards to the red lines, I will see if I can get you in the loop on that. Thanks for the observation, I'll look into that....
So if looking at my latest pics, the 3rd to last and 2nd to last, the black "drier" next to the washer fluid. The upper red hose going in needs to be swapped to the lower hose and I will need a new drier in order for it to function properly and I assume re-pressurize the lines. Is that what Steve is saying. Anyone feel free to chime in.Shane, That other can was a muffler and not needed in your setup.
I'm definitely not a pro, but I agree. The inlet port is the hose from the compressor, and it allows the liquid refrigerant to first flow through a filter and then the desiccant towards the center of the device where it then flows upward out the top port which is connected to the expansion valve on the evaporator. It can't work properly in reverse.yes definitely ask a pro but from what I’ve read they are one way flow
Awesome thank you everyone, this will help with my "expert" looking at it on St. Paddy's day, better take it in early before the green beer and Jamison starts flowing. Love the wine shot Steve thank you. At first those pics didn't appear on my computer, now I see them just fine. I'm obviously not a computer expert either, didn't touch a thing and now pictures pop up today. Maybe needed a refresh. I see you have your drier more forward, does that help with the bend in the lines? I'll have to check it out today and see if the Bav has same forward holes, I think it does as mine originally came with A/C, everything was removed during the restoration and didn't go back in until after engine bay refresh. the Ceylon middle shot is the same as yours too, position wise. I wonder if I turn my car around, if they will work then...........sarc!
yes they are assbackwards, typically if you open up the system by removing hoses you’ll need a new drier.
