Default A/C high pressure line

I mentioned previously that my A/C is leaking and I think I found the leak, which is the high pressure line (which holds the valve where you put the refrigerator gas to the system). I took it out and I wanted to use the line from my other jeep which is a 2001 model. Not sure if these are the same since it looks like it does not fit (or I am to stupid to put it back). It also has a hole which I tried to fix with low temperatures Aluminum soldering material but I am not really happy and from moving it back and forth I have scraped the soldered material off and the hole is back.

I checked rockauto and I consider to order a new line. Now the question is, do right hand drive and left hand drive WJ's have different lines or are these exactly the same? I am worried that they are mirrored.

I like the one's from rockauto better, since they have a flexible rubber line in between (compare to a straight aluminum line) which makes it much easier to fit.

Any experience to share?

Thanks
Joerg

Sorry i just re-checked. It is the low pressure line, where the valve for putting the refrigerator gas, and that's the line i need.
It really looks like the line is even from 2001 to 2002 different.

After checking again on the Rockauto website, it looks like I can simple replace the valve with a A/C valve replacement kit. So no need to replace the entire line (well I got it out already so I leave it till I get the kit).

You might be able to do a repair using this:

I've used it in the past on refrigerant system aluminium pipes & it works a treat.

Cheers
