Tried the dealership and was told the AC's condencer is discontinued. Went to NAPA but the pictures in their catalog show a different bend and size of the pipes that connect to the accumulator. Any recommendations are welcome.

Thanks

If you are using R-12, the OEM-style condenser should have adequate cooling capacity.

With R-134A in the system, I would want more cooling at the condenser than the R-12 condenser can provide. You may have to get a universal style condenser to improve condenser cooling. I'm not sure if there are bolt-in condensers that provide better cooling than the OEM condenser. Please post if you find a bolt-in condenser that provides R-134A level cooling.

Parallel flow, maximum surface area, high fin count, high tube count, with adequate airflow across the condenser. Have a look at any OEM condenser on a newer vehicle.

Here is a site with universal condensers:
Unpainted Aluminum

Vintage air condensers:

If you are still looking for one, Highway Stars has them on the website.
