NEW OEM EVAPORATOR IN R-134a fittings

Production for new OEM evaporators with R-134a O-ring fittings was commissioned after two prototypes resulted in a final success
Today, my first deliveries have arrived.

With this final production, I now have a complete OEM replacement set for The Dino 246 in R-134a fittings with OEM original appearance. Every part in our system is new, appears identical to OEM but has superior HNBR O-Ring seals.
Every junction has ditched the old flare type seals for HNBR O-rings; the compressor, hoses, evaporator, condensor, drier and all port fittings.

The original evaporator was a hefty 4 Pass, 19 row unit with flare fittings.
Our unit fits in the same form factor and is a 4 Pass, 16 row unit but has O-Ring seals

They original flare fittings were so leaky that the Ferrari owner's manual printed a recommendation to fill the system with Freon every year.
Modern fittings are superior in performance and longevity.
