I have a shure pgx14 lavalier wireless system. I tried to use it with my accordion but there is to much distortion going on. Could I just buy the 98/hc mic? Would it be compatible or do I need to buy the entire system? Thank you.

You can buy a clip mounted Beta 98 that will hook right up to the same connector on your belt pack, you'll be fine.  Just make sure to order the WB98H/c.  The Beta 98H/c is the exact same mic but with an XLR connector at the end and is not made for wireless belt packs.

Hard to say without hearing it for myself.  Distortion can be caused in many places from the mic capsule all the way through the signal chain.  You might be clipping the transmitter.  If so, the belt pack has a gain adjustment.  You could play with that to see if you stop getting distortion.  If you are not going into the red, and there's still distortion, it's probably the mic not being able to handle the SPL or it could also be the channel on the console with the gain to high.

On thing is for sure though, the PGX14 with a WB98H/c does not distort normally when close-micing and accordion.

a lav is most likely not set up for the volume level an accordion can generate. When I was designing our mic system we did some db readings and got about 129db about 2 inches from the grill on a Weltmeister Rubin (needle was pegged). The poor lav was most likely over driven.
 Lavs are designed to clip to a persons clothing 4-5 inches from their mouth, since they are often not very directional they can be a feedback problem in noisy environments. They were a pain when I did AV years ago people would always walk in front of speakers and such, and they would pick up stuff like the house air conditioning.
