I have worked non-Union my whole life and I have recently taken a job were i am now the boss at a Union shop. I know how long this job would have taken me but I am told that I am not being unrealistic, what are your thoughts?
I am not asking for a price or want to know how to do this just job, but your experience on how long a valve plate replacement would take for you to complete if the job went smoothly, and if it did not go smoothly the quote covered that issue.
Its a built up system with an O6E compressor.
(1) Replace all 3 valves plates, (top, left, right)
(2) Replace the oil
(3) Replace the pressure relief
(4) Replace the (2) 75Amp contactors
(5) Start and check operation, no other issues and leave.
(6) The valve plates have core charges and need to be returned
The building elevator will take you up the top floor you will have to schlep up 20 steeps to the roof.
You pick up your needed parts (2) days earlier while on another job.
The drier was not replaced.
The compressor was not painted when the work was completed.
Mechanical room was left broom swept clean.
All other normal procedures were followed.
This is your account were you have performed the maintenance for years so you know the system and exactly how it works.
Compressor was valved off.
