Default parallel flow condenser

are there any decent (aftermarket) parallel flow condensers for 240s on Amazon.com? I want to ship one directly to my country and amazon has free shipping

You would need to make a new line from the condensor to dryer, using a 180* fitting and a 90* fitting, #6 in size. You would also need to put a new end on the compressor-condenser hose, or make a new one.

I installed this very condenser in an 83 the other day, but made all new hoses. Amazon hydraulic crimper on it's 3rd AC system rebuild and still kicking ass, highly recommended!

Luckily the stock one was in good shape. Ran ac flush, brake clean, and compressed air through it. Straightened the fins. Booger freezer with envirosafe.

^Sounds great. I found a direct fit parallel flow condenser at Swedish Car Parts, yikes $340 plus shipping.

Then remembered I had a real Volvo '93 version in the garage!

Used these guys and some "custom" brackets to fit the 93 style to the earlier style 240
