    So I'm trying to figure out where the orifice tube is on this 1996 Dodge Ram 5.9 V8 and some are fixed in the low side tube and some of them are right by the condenser. Anybody know which one I have or how can I find out without tearing it apart?

    I had to google to find mine on my 94 chevy, and its in a odd hidden hard to get to place. Might see if you can google it and if anything comes up from the results. Just hope its not like my 94 chevy hard to get to.

    I have buddy. 94 through 97 seem en in different places. Still not certain. I guess when I tear it apart I'll find out. :) if it's fixed it comes in the hose. If not you just buy an orifice tube and install it. One is way more cheaper then the other.
