That first letter should be a "K".
See attachment for the current R12 LT replacement.

They both came with a KAT2-0100-CAB compressor.
Unit capacity: 4950 btuh @ -20 SST @ 90 ambient.
The new number for the compressor is KATB-010A-CAV.
The voltage code on the existing compressor "CAB" designates 230-1. The replacement voltage code "CAV" designates 208/230-1. You must also purchase new starting components if you change the compressor. Actually new start components should always be installed on a compressor changeout. In this case I believe the run cap is different.
If you want to change out the condensing unit and stay with a low pressure gas, R12 or interim, I only find a Tecumseh welded unit available. The model is AHA2466AXDXC, 5200 btuh @ -20 SST @ 90 ambient.
Or you could change to a high pressure gas unit, R404A, in which case there are several models available, depending if you want a semi or welded. The TEV would also need to be changed.
