BPD OIL COOLER install

Ok, my question is with the A/C condenser. I'm at that point in the installation and the one installed in my truck isn't like the one in the manual nor in forum member Snakes write up. Are the self team screws going to mess up the condenser, or will it be fine? Please advise asap! Txt or call my cell at 202-236-8305. Thank you in advance for the assistance.

Don't see any flange to tap into, all I see are the freon headers so I'm assuming that it mounts top and bottom. Looks like your going to have to get creative on how you mount BPD's cooler.

PBD OIL COOLER install

Or get some C channel to go across the rad opening then bolt the oil cooler to that. An electrical shop would probably have low profile stuff but they don't call it C channel and the name escapes me at the moment. They use it to mount large electrical components in a cabinet there are special clips that snap onto this C channel also.

Unistrut. Good idea. I talked to him on the phone. He's super pushed for time though. If I was closer, I'd like to go help him. Justin, if you hit a dead End and need something fabbed let me know. I've got a buddy that does fab work on the side that lives in Penn valley

My only suggestion at this point would be to hang the filterhead and route the lines before you mount the heat exchanger to be sure you put it "close enough" to the right spot to have enough hose.

He got it mocked into position, but his AC condenser doesn't have any mounting locations for the bracket. He got it zip tied on pretty well for now. Pretty impressive job for a short term solution until bpd can get him the right part
