Hey guys, have a 22-year old Magic Chef h.p. cant read #'s inside or out, a/h heaters just cooked completely, outdoor compresssor M#CRC4-0175 PFV, LRA 54 amps. Is this a 2-ton heat pump?

That old heap sure did its' job for the HO :)
I'd call it a 2 ton. Usually comp is a hair smaller than nominal rating of the system.

Its a Copeland Compressor. They are pretty tough. I went thru the Copeland facility in Ohio in 1977 and walked into the RandD area ; they had a/c compressors on a rack running under extremely abnormal conditions such as : totally flooded, very high head pressure, low suction pressure, etc..with hundreds of hours of runtime on them. I was pretty impressed to say the least.
That old Heat Pump of yours has lasted twice as long as they typically do.
