    Most likely it's what you said: "good luck on that". I have been rebuilding compressors since 1972 in Michigan and when I started it was about 50/50 open drives and semi hermetics. Now its about...

    I remember water cooled seals, what a blast from the past! Theaters around here used to run open drive Chrysler AirTemp radials.

    tranger03,
    Do you work on any of the smaller 340 series Vilters? If so, do they leak at the rates shown for the 400 series units? Just curious because we don't see any of the 400 series machines...

    Yes. You could replace a valve plate on a compressor and accidentally leave a suction valve reed out (which would be the same as having one broken reed). The compressor would still pump down and...

    Everyone,
    Valving off the suction service valve to check for proper valve operation is not a definitive test. A compressor can have a broken suction reed and still pull into a vacuum, it just takes...

    pherman,
    That was a Chrysler Airtemp model 3011 or 3015. They were suspended in the unit by that top bracket and isolated with rubber mounts. Those compressors were 3600 rpm instead of everyone...

    Most likely the clearances inside the compressor are excessive. You can try to clean the pick up screen, though. On a 9R compressor the screen is behind the small diamond shaped cap on the lower...

    Hockeynut,
    Yes you have a bad compressor. When a discharge valve fails high side pressure is always pushing on the head of the piston. The constant pressure does not allow load reversal to occur. ...

    Servman,
    I believe that you have a defective compressor. Sometimes the low oil pressure is caused by a worn out oil pump. The Carlyle oil pump in NOT a gear style pump like a Copeland. Instead,...

    Has anyone changed a valve plate before on that compressor? Was the unloader added in the field? Taking the unloader off to see if the piston "snaps up" won't work. Remember, on a scou the piston...

    Do you intend to rebuild or remanufacture? Seriously, this is a question that I get asked all the time. We remanufacture. It does make a difference in the quality of the end product.
