Bought a 65 Mercury Marauder with a locked up 390 about a month ago. Car has factory air and plan is to make it a Power Tour type cruiser by repowering it with an Explorer 5.0 and 4R70W trans. So while getting the 390 out this morning, I got the crank pulley into the AC condenser. Not bad enough that it ruptured any tubes that I can tell. Looks like I could spend some time straightening fins out, but I am wondering if my time would be better spent hitting the local u pull it yard with a tape measure to find a modern condenser to fit. Going to have custom hoses made anyway to hook system to the Explorer pump. So has time time/technology made modern condensers more efficient than the olld 60's number, or is a condenser just a condenser??
