    Found this just 10 days after a repair on a 5' section 4 1/8" suction line going through the ceiling. It's an R-22 system. 2nd picture is the wall facing the unit. Needed 3 gallons of oil as well. Third and fourth pictures are the "original" problem...condensor making noise...mmmm...where's the missing fan? Oh, here it is, in the condensor coil...still running!

    That's the first isolator I've seen that looks like that. All the ones we use are braided.

    Is that a factory, OEM installation of the vib-a-sorber flex tube? Is that a Carrier Condenser??

    Factory job, Federal Pacific condensor, Carlyle compressor. Very old unit, maybe 18-20 years?
