parallel flow condensor installed in a W123
I purchased the 14X22.5 parallel flow condensor from ACKITS.com and had a manifold made up at a local hydraulic shop, actually 2 sets since I had to adjust everything higher then I originally thought.
I bent and welded brackets for the middle section. Sized and twisted the upper brackets. Drilled holes in the radiator support and primed them to prevent rust. Then made a bracket to support the manifold that was made. I wanted to prevent any flexing of the tubes that could lead to cracks and leaks. Attached is the condensor un-installed.
