It should be right where the line splits where it goes into the evaporator.

evaporator?

I beleive the evaporator is also known as the accumulator, correct? I have the accumulator removed because it has a pin hole in it. I do not see a "split" in the line. The A/C line goes into a large black box right behind the accumlator.

Piffery1 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Accumulator is not the same as the evaporator. Accumulator is tank looking device underhood near firewall on passenger side. Evaporator is finned unit inside heater and A/C housing. Orfice tube is inside evaporator inlet pipe where high pressure line (bottom pipe) from condenser (in front of radiator) attaches.
