Currently the car according to its conversion sticker has an r12 substitute with POE oil, im undoing all that and going back to r12 and mineral oil. The only thing to do is flush out the evaporator and drain the compressor and hope i got it all out.

This is what the new condensor looks like.





Unless you find an original NOS one, you're probably not going to find a match to your old one. The newer ones are more efficient and better suited to r134A anyway.

I did find a nos condensor but i just aint paying what they were asking for it.

You don't want a NOS acspoogeulator as that has a desiccant pack in it. They go bad over time.

Im finding this out the hard way, the nos one i bought is all rusted down inside the tube yet looks totally fine on the outside.
Its junk and unusable, tried to take a pic of it but my device keeps turning the pics into videos for some reason.
