Orifice tube in the Gen II AC Systems?

The low side of my AC system pressure is sky high (90) while the high side is barely at 50. Is there an orifice tube (insert joke here) in the Gen II system and if so where is it? The system is acting like it is plugged and not allowing the pressures to move to normal limits. The air is hot (no shit) and just a few bubbles are present in the window of the system so I know there is coolant. Oh well if I can't get it fixed at least we have another fucking storm heading toward us here in Florida. Should cool things off for a while
Common, I am really counting on you to help me out with this technical Viper question. Don't let me down.

Yeah, doesn't really sound good on this site does it? Maybe on the corvette site!! For those who haven't become intimate with the orifice tube it is a filter of sorts for the AC system. Catches all kind of nasty shit. But where is it?

I was looking at the gen1 service manual. And it read, "expansion valve located inside the heater - ac box." Not sure about the gen 2



A/C system is going to have an expansion valve or an orifice tube. But not both.. So I guess look for an expansion valve... Hope this helped.
