98 Esprit V8 radiator & AC Condenser replacement
 
I replaced an after market aluminum radiator with an original one. I'm a little stumped about the correct placement of the AC condenser center stay! Does it attach to the condenser positioned between the radiator and condenser or does it attach to the condenser in front? Does it also attach at the bottom to fiberglass structure??

Thanks,

Tom

Tom,

Could you attach a picture/screenshot of the applicable parts diagram, and perhaps a picture of your engine showing that area?

top is riveted to the radiator frame, bottom is bolted to the fiberglass support

Here's a pic. Note the rivet at the top, and the oil cooler line at the bottom. I flared this one out a bit at the top because I didn't like how it was hitting the fins.
