the orfice tube is locate in the line between condenser and evaporator. near the spring lock coupling. you must unbolt the cruise servo and overflow bottle, reposition them out of way and you will see the line connection..the orfice is inside line near that uniion. the ac system must be evacuated prior to removal, and recharged afterwards..

Testimonial: "Yeah it was actually a lot easier to change than I thought it would be. Now my compressor while recharging it isn't kicking on. Is there a way to get it going again or am I doomed to have to get a new one of those too? lol thanks"
SOURCE: loacation of the orifice tube
The AC evaporator orifice always has to be after the electronic freon release valve after the receiver/dryer, and the evaporator itself.
It is optimal for it to be as close to the evaporator as possible, so sometimes it is even part of the input for the evaporator.
However, it is best if it is separate, because the orifice often gets clogged.
But the most common cause of clogging is ice, so try a vacuum pump to desiccate any moisture out first.
If the clog is ice, you can tell by heating the orifice and melting the ice.
Careful not to get it too hot though.
You don't want to damage hoses, and if freon gets into a flame, it can be toxic.
