Default 1988 B2200 A/C Compressor replacement

I recently replaced the compressor in my 1988 B2200. I am having trouble locating some new parts. The parts I am trying to locate are the low & high side refrigerant hoses. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I also have a 1988 B2200 with AC; I live in Phoenix, home of required-AC.

You could call a Mazda dealer to ask if they are available, but I couldn't find a listing for these at one dealer online site.

That said: here's what I would do; I had my own B2200 high pressure hose repaired once locally. A "real" AC shop in Knoxville should be able to do such custom hose using your fittings or new fittings. Maybe a real machine shop could do the same, they may need to weld new hose barbs onto your fittings.

If you can't find such shop locally, I'd contact Tim at Arizona Mobile Air 602-233-0090
because they have been able make custom hoses using your fittings. Or AC Source 800-439-6695 and ask them.

By the way: MazdaTrucking.com site gets a lot more traffic/viewers/contributors than this site, and knowledgeable. I've had my 1988 B2200 for 21.5 years now, at least 3 AC compressors installed by me. The last one was fall 2014 from that Arizona Mobile Air I had mentioned, brand-new not rebuilt. New has dropped in price the last few years.

Thank you Cusser! I have been out of pocket a few days. I did call the number you posted but they did not have the parts. I will look into having them made at a local A/C shop.
Again, thank you.

Yeah, local AC shop or good machine shop should be able to do this.
