my AC condenser was damaged in a car accident. I ordered a new one and mounted it no prob, but when i was screwing in the connectors, the threads stripped on both ends. It would tighten like two or three turns, but that was as tight as it would go. After that, it would strip the threads. now i'm out a little over 250 bucks and have a bum condensor mounted. can i weld this bastard together or something and avoid paying for another condenser?
