That is, until they heard the sound of something inside "giving way". Yep, they completely skipped disassembling the compressor. I don't recall hearing what it was that broke.
    Must have forgot to take the nuts off the torque converter. Kind of hard to pull a motor unless you do that.

    For a machine like this, around two weeks to do a right proper job for the customer and to do it safely. Some are easier than others. As long as nothing crazy happened, most Carriers and Yorks can be done in about a week, I think.

    You shoulda seen the last one I posted pictures of! No overhead room, no air conditioning, no light, and a machine right next to the one we were overhauling that was constantly on the brink of surging due to messed up cooling towers!

    No air conditioning!!! The horror! Rob, you make it sound like that is unusual. I've only seen one owner with air conditioned chiller rooms. Thankfully it is a large campus with four chilled water plants. It was always a pleasure to work there.

    "and a machine right next to the one we were overhauling" what do you mean no air conditioning? Sounds like you had plenty
