I'm in the process of upgrading my 66 Mustang to R134 and I installed a new radiator, evaporator, and condenser in the car. I had the system evacuated by an a/c specialist in my town but when installed the top discharge hose, it is approximately 1 inch too short to connect to the evaporator. My mechanic claims the new radiator was not an exact fit compared to the OEM radiator so the difference is caused by the radiator. I went online and learned that I can purchase high pressure hose by the inch along with connectors to make a new discharge hose. My questions is "can the new connectors be attached to the high pressure hose using a plumbers crimping tool"? My plumber will make the connection if he knows it will work on my car. Any advice is appreciated.

I'd probably go to an industrial hose supply source and have them crimp it. What sort of plumbing crimping tool are we talking about?

Yes...most mechanics today have the crimping tool and can make that easily happen but industrial suppliers, heavy equipment, tractor equipment or high pressure line companies can easily do that for you!!!!!!
