scrolls to recips
I noticed a thread from a couple days ago about someone changing out a recip compressor to a scroll.....How many of you have replaced a scroll with a recip? I have done several on units out of warranty where the customer did not want to replace the entire unit or system. I have always used a techumseh and had great results along with a good flush when needed, suction line drier depending on severity of burnout, and vacuum. Some guys have said it shouldn't be done, but I have. Scrolls too, are an expensive replacement. My opinion, scrolls don't hold up as well as a recip, especially on a loss of charge situation where the unit goes into a vacuum for a long period of time, or should I say for a scroll, a short time before death!
