Anyone with an early "G" body, technically an "A" body. So say 78-81? I need to confirm the location of the sensing bulb from the cycling switch to the evap. It's a long thin aluminum wire that comes off a small box(relay) mounted on the AC box and then connects to the pipe on the evap.
When I replaced my evap I put it back the way I found it. On the inlet pipe. This is the smaller bottom pipe that houses the orifice tube.
While discussing cooling problems and pressures, I was told that I had it mounted wrong and it should be on the outlet.
Others have told me this is wrong and that the bulb is used to "feed" the evap. Someone else said their 1978 Mitchell manual clearly states the bulb shoud be mounted on the inlet/orifice pipe.
So...can someone please take a look and let me know so I can be done with this?
thanks

The later ones use a switch on the accumulator I think.
Thanks Carl. That's where it was before I took out the old evap. But since I don't have it from new I wasn't sure if the previous owner had it wrong.

George thanks I think Carl cleared it up.
