I have a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier100K+ miles; 2.2L OHV. I purchased a new AC compressor 3/4 inch dia. Suction port. Does this model require a 5/8 inch port diameter - OR - more importantly do I HAVE to replace the accumulator/drier AND the expansion(orifice) tube? This has become a more than involved process! Arggh! Can anyone help? Thanks in advance! Rav4natic

To do it right yes! You should also get a pancake filter and filter any contaminants, then remove the filter and recharge.
