AC Condensor- smaller size?

The saga continues. I have borrowed a condensor to have brackets fabricated for my hot mess and low and behold it's a different condensor. So, I have a smaller condensor for my AC kit and haven't been able to locate how this condensor mounts to the truck. I know that there are at least 4 different kinds of condensors based on the system you have, etc. Photos attached of the borrowed full size condensor and the mini one I have. Also a close shot of the only bracket attached to mine.

I am looking for some photos/thoughts of how to install this smaller condensor.

Thanks,
Alex

I have the same condenser as yours on my old 110. I can try pictures or you can come look at it if you like. Funny -It started blowing warm so I added refrigerant last night. The darn condenser has a leak. Do you suppose they can patch a leak in a condenser like they can with a radiator?

Where did you get that smaller condensor I need one? I am doing AC on my series and with the IC I only have room for like 16"x16". Do you have the measurements?

Photos would be great but I can look too. I owe you some beverages too! Have no idea on the patching, let me know if you find out anyting since that will likely be my next mess...

Will measure and post those for you. If you have the full size in similar used condition I'd be willing to swap but then you'll be in a similar boat as I am with the bracket mess. This came with a kit I purchased off the board almost 2 years ago.

I do and no problem on the bracket I have to make everything for this conversion. I'll take a picture

Not sure if this helps any since mine is a 97 but the larger of your 2 condensors looks very similar to mine. Have attached some pics of how mine mounts to the truck and the part #s. Mounts to the same points as the radiator using 4 brackets. Might be useful, might not.

I finally got a chance to pull my condensor out last night, Alex. Turns out its the big one. What can I say? Beer goggles? Sorry I'm no help. Good luck.

I don't know if those fittings will work with the hoses that I currently have.

Thanks Ian that's exactly what I needed.

Thanks for looking Rod.

Alex

Torch welding. They do that all the time down here. The result is not very nice but it works.
