The connections used for the evaporator are slip in compression fittings with a bracket to hold them in place. I would say that all you would need would be a pair of channel lokc pliers and a screwdriver

  1. You'll need a tool to release the tension on the serpentine belt and when you need to put the belt back on. Regular standard socket wrenches will suffice for the rest.

Where is orface tube on 88 f150

It is at the inlet to the AC evaporator core on the passenger side of the firewall under the hood. This would be the small AC line to the evaporator core that must come off, you will need a spring retainer tool to remove the line and most likely a fixed orifice tool to extract the old one, DO NOT DASMAG THE INLET TUBE TO THE CORE!

Orfice tube location

the fixed orifice is located in the inlet tube to the evaporator core, this is where the small high pressure AC line from the compressor connects to the tube sticking out of the engine firewall, u will most likely need a special tool to remove it, here is a web link to the tool, don't damage the evaporator core by trying to remove the orifice tube without this if it is stuck down in the tube.
