P-30 Condenser w/integral oil cooler

Some P-30 chassis had installed an AC condenser w/integral oil cooler (1 unit). The oil cooler resides in the bottom portion of the unit. I'm in the process of replacing mine in my 1994 GM P-30 Southwind Storm 28ft.


The part in question is here:

In the 2nd pic you can see the oil cooler connections. On the left side is the drier bottle connection and top right the discharge line connection. The unit sits via J channel on the bottom side then is tilted forward against frame and bolt via (3) bolts.



The problem is they mounted it metal-metal and vibration can crack the tubing. Before installing use some 'cut to sized' pieces of 'bicycle inner tube' and the pieces where the condenser fits against any metal. This will greatly reduce shock.


The following is a schematic of the condenser/oil cooler...

The GM hose fittings for it are either sized 1/2in or 5/8 YN fittings


AC drier bottle is 3/4-16UFN

If you purchase the condenser w/oil cooler you'll have to use the upper & lower bracket of the old unit to mount the new one. It is attached via small screws at each corner as such (top drivers side corner):


The pic turned left 90 degrees. Second pic is of the old one prior to removal in situ (it uploaded upside down).
