I need you help to identify this. I though this was part of the A/C unit, but I think I'm wrong.

Eh. as long as it isn't leaking lol. Most other M20s didn't come with one so I always thought of it as an extra. "Nice to have" as it were.

Is your oil cooler actually mounted? It looks like a mount to the left of the arrow in the second picture. Mine is just hanging there loose.

Mine is mounted like that too. The tabs the bushing slides into break easily so lots of cars end up with the cooler just hanging.

You say "hanging" I say "self lowering to catch more air"

Not all of them, that's a custom M part. Better throw an ///M badge on that bad boy.
