Would the evac for an hour or longer actually remove any moister or should i just go ahead and replace all o-rings, dryer, orifices, evac and fill? I think my cost would still be manageable if i dont screw anything up????
Oh you won't find a orifice on a dodge, usually ford and gm. On dodge the expansion valve is an orifice.

Anyways your best bet is to begin by replace the two valves then do a vacuum and check to see if it leaks by the way I said before.

In some cases yes the continual vac will remove moisture from the drier but if the drier has never been replaced you might as well just do it while the system is opened because once you have all the new refrigerant in it would be a waste to let it all out to replace something as silly as a drier.

The only O-Rings I would replace would be any that connect to the drier. Everything else don't touch.
