I looked up 92490-7B411, that's a high pressure line for a V6 engine, mine's 4-cylinder.

You've come across this situation before???? That's amazing, how come no one at the factory - even in China - could measure or compare to a factory line?

So since my AC is all connected, filled with R134a and working great right now, would you leave it "as is" until the O-ring leaked (if ever) or take it apart NOW and shorten the fitting ends?

I realize that my risk is just not losing 2 cans of R134a but the chance of losing an unknown amount of refrigeration oil should that happen, and having to guess how much oil to back add.

Thanks for the input.

UPDATE: I did NOT open up the system to trim the ends of the fittings to match the original factory "depth". So it's been like 7 weeks now since I shortened the fittings "somewhat" on the only available aftermarket hose and replaced the fan clutch, and the system has continued to operate perfectly.

Will this fail/leak at either end eventually??? I have no idea. But I'll deal with that - and the guess of any loss of oil - when and if that happens.
A 221K-old AC system in Arizona that works so well in afternoon sun that one must shut the compressor off periodically is nothing to sneeze at, or monkey with (111F in Phoenix a few days ago).

UPDATE Oct. 14, 2017.

AC still holding pressure/leak-free and working fine, still mid 90s in Phoenix this time of year so still using the AC.
