These fitting are generally used on Sanden compressors with vertical #8 (discharge) and #10 (suction) ports.
Red cap fittings are #8 in 90 and 135 degrees female o ring with high side 134A service port (discharge).
Blue cap fitting is #10 135 degree female o ring with 134A low side service port (suction).

Ed, would you be able to build a set of stock AC hoses for a '79? My local AC shop butchered my last set.

Yes, but need to know exactly how your truck is equipped, such as type of compressor (i.e. sanden or york on 360 AMC engine), service valves,condenser (oem,aftermarket,o-ring,flare) will you install anew oem drier or relocated aftermarket drier,is the evap the 79 style with flare fittings and externally equalized expansion valve, R12 or 134A
The only way I could recreate a hose set is with detailed input from you or to have your truck here in my shop in central California,otherwise I may also create something that won't work either.

Hmm.. Good info.

Now, the "Question" :
I just installed a 2018 GM L 83 and plan to use the stock compressor that came with it. First, what compressor is this? I find no mfg name on it? And - do you have an AC block that would attach to said compressor? Can you make one? I did not get the AC block with the engine.

Reading your post.. it seems I could have you make the lines?
Plan is to use my stock parts.. but want to move the dryer under hood.
I plan to mock up all the hose length and end fittings and have some made. Would ship that to you. Feasible ?

TIA - Jim
