Need A/C condenser for 1986 345

Anyone have a lead on the A/C condenser that goes on a 1986 345? It was missing when I purchased it. The roof A/C works fine, but I'd like to get the engine A/C working as well. Have new compressor, and existing evaporator already installed. Blower runs but squeaks.

My apologies if I should have posted this elsewhere rather than start a new thread. If so please let me know. Thanks.

Hi there!. I don't know if this will help you, but my dash air has been a source of frustration since I bought this coach. I think even on it's best day, the dash air is no match for the volume of space to be cooled. Especially considering the size of the windshields!. That being said, when I converted mine to R134a, I suspected the original condenser as being clogged or corroded. SO I just ordered a high volume replacement that had basically the same dimensions, and fabricated brackets. Good luck!

Is the Heater working on all modes,(def/floor/etc)?
The modes are controlled by engine vacuum and the diverter doors can get stuck or a line leaking.
