    1.5 ton based on the air handler.

    I have a 72 Vega I need a new engine for, if the mounts that hold it aren't too rusted.

    Your dropping more money than it's worth.

    IF you find a compressor that MIGHT work, you've still got a compressor surrounded by 32 year old parts.

    "Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."

    "Just get it done son."

    so pretty much any 1.5 ton compressor will work/ but might have to adjust lines.
    And before the smart a$$'s ask, i just give the parts house a m#.

    My job is to get prices and recommend what I would do. She spends her own money, not me.

    you'll go far with that attitude when you seek information.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Isn't it amazing. Someone comes onto a web site with professionals on it, asks their opinion about an issue and cops and attitude when they ask legitimate questions about a system that easily out of date. I believe G.E. sold out to Trane, what, 25-years ago? The cost of operation on a 6-SEER unit like that would buy a new 13-SEER system and pay for it in a couple of years. Oh well, guess you can lead a horse to water but you cain't make him drink!
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    Some of those old GE units were bullet proof. I can tell you where more than a couple dozen are still running while some other brands have come and gone more than once. if that were my unit and both the indoor and outdoor were still in good shape i would drop a compressor in it without even thinking about it. besides how many used r22 compressors can you find nowadays, plenty!
