    Gotta love people we are working on a condo complex right now and I have seen more than a few 30 year old Lennox 2 ton condensers with new compressors in them

    I would only do it as a no warranty situation and money up front if I was ultimately financially responsible for something like this or 30 year old units.

    I commend your ability to make messes like these rise from the dead, but I would CYA with a steel reinforced, locking chasity belt.

    Charity cases exepted, of course.

    Hey now... I would jam a new scroll in my janitrol dinosaur in a heartbeat! I just spent an afternoon this past spring sprucing it up.

    If they do not want a new unit and want it fixed I would shove all the parts in it they want. Of course I dont install new stuff, I stay much more busy making old junk new again.

    You weren't the first guy he called and you obviously weren't the last. He's getting exactly what he's willing to pay for.

    I would tell him get some wood and build a fire in the unit then turn on the fan.
    My name is TooCoolforschool and I am a chronic over charger.

    Lol the only other thing I suggested to him is electric base board heat. Other then that I can't do anything.

    That is a good option but when he gets his bill he'll be blaming you for it.

    Rubber tape with a duct tape wrap to secure never fails. That's probably what's on it with a foil tape wrap for heat deflection

    They are the most time consuming. But if you do or have done tons of em, you knock em out . . . While keeping it clean and not ripping up insulation!
