This is a R134a condenser designed for the older Chevrolet p/u with a 5.7L engine. Still need to make sure you fan clutch is working correctly. Vehicle should also have a full fan shroud.
Is that the stock type? I looked at my truck (1989 GMC 1500 with 5.7 liter engine) and it seems to have one of those already. I know it's been minorly wrecked in the front a couple of times but I don't know if the condenser was ever replaced or not.
Right now it is an empty R-12 system, I assume shaft seal leak. If that condenser is going to work with R-134a I'd consider buying a compressor for it. Really don't want to put a lot of money into something that only gets used a couple of days a year.
It's the replacement we have available. I think it is very similar to the stock condenser. It's basically the 6mm design you see on some modern vehicles. While not as good as a true PF unit. With its size and design should work fine with R134a.
