don't you just love when the flames burn off the wiring schematic?"Better tell the sandman to stay away, because we're gonna be workin on this one all night."
"Dude, you need more than 2 wires to a condenser to run a 2 stage heatpump."
"Just get it done son."

Would be glad to have the flame roasted schematic instead of the massive wiring harness and all the wiring within a 1 foot radius around the two flame throwing transformers that is destroyed.

What's your technique for setting that compressor in place? I have 8 CSHAs to replace on a rooftop and was denied a crane... I have a 40' man lift to get them on the roof but from there is looks like it might be pure muscle.

1. He-man that thing in there
2. A couple 2x4s making two ramps, roll it up into it.
3. Get straps or chains and go over the top of the unit and hook on the frame on the other side. I try to have it just long enough that a loop of the strap just barely hangs over by the electrical panel. Then I hook a come a long/chain fall/chain hoist to it and lift it in there.

Also if it is a flat roof. A engine hoist can be brought onto a roof in manageable pieces. We turned the boom around on ours and counterweight the base. It works okay not the safest way if you don't have enough counterweight.
