Mounting AC Condenser on Radiator Wall

I am in the process of putting in an all original factory ac system in my 67 Camaro.

My question is: Do the screws that hold the condenser to the mounting brackets actually go through the condenser fins????

Thatís what it looks like in my 1967 Chassis Service Manual. The Assembly Manual doesnít (really) have a clear description either.

I just think itís a bit odd to have screws go through the condenser fins to secure it to the mounting plates on the radiator wall.

Thanks for any input.

Re: Mounting AC Condenser on Radiator Wall

I have a '67 w/AC as well.

The 2 edges of your condenser should be lined with a series of small (1/8"? diameter) holes. The two side brackets use small screws to attach to the condenser in this location, adjusting up or down for fitment as required.

If the condenser ends of the brackets require you to attach too far inboard of the condenser, then your condenser is probably too wide. Mount the brackets to the radiator support and measure between them to determine the proper size (width) condenser for your application.
