Are there stock style replacement expansion valves available? I can make some of the modern ones work but would rather have one that fits right in without mods.

My Old one was a 2 ton unit from general controls v201k15a111. Looks like a 4 seasons 38604 is a 2 ton that may work and a 1.5 ton is 38606. I ordered the 2 ton unit for $21 I may have to bend a copper line some to get it to line up. The original has 45 degree inlet and outlet while the new one appears to be at a 90 degree. Old one didn't have a flared connector on the outlet but the tubes are flare connectors in the car so it should work better at sealing.
