As I recall, triggerhappy is not mistaken. These compressors operated much like the big iron Trane (Mod E & F) and could incorporate pneumatic unloading using that port. Otherwise it was left open to the atmosphere.
As I found while talking to the guy at the local reman shop. He told me Trane bought or borrowed this design later on their compressors. He also did say that they were without a doubt almost bullet proof. Unless you flood the crap out of them with the loader. I think that is what happened to this one.
You're fixin' to own that compressor.
The last Worthington I opened up was the same thing and ended up pulling it out for a rebuild.
You assume that I have not fully disclosed this info with my customer. They were given the options and they chose to make the repairs with no guarantee that it will not break a week from now. SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ASSUME only this time you left out the last 2 letters.
That was unnecessary. Hope it made you feel better.
Hold onto the smiley face, you'll need it later.
Just having some fun. Not meaning to insult you at all. I would not be rebuilding this if the customer had not opted to do so and I will not, and do not in any way own this compressor and it has been made clear to them fully that I in no way guarantee the future of this machine beyond its working condition now, (its broke).
If it dont work after all this crap than assume that I have removed the u and only..... yeah you get it.
It will be interesting to see how it plays out. Today I began reassembling even though I did not have a couple gaskets and as I put the cylinder wall in it felt a little strange and sure enough the internal o ring for the loader housing was caught in the liner wall and sheared in 2, so I had to get an o-ring. Other than that it is going smooth so far and even better the customer asked me to get a price on a new chiller system in case this dont work or fails in the near future.
I may need a smiley face to borrow in the very and I mean very near future, but I covered my arse on this one.
I have one of these that i am trying to find sme info on.
Model # lvs-401640-u
can you still get parts if so where. What tonage is the unit?
Parts. Yes still available. Info also available. Where you at. The one in the pics is also a 2vx. Got er running today, whew!!!!!!!!!! I know I explained it to the customer that I could make no guarantees but I still wanted it to work out, going back in the morn to check on er. Mo pix coming soon, I have to clean up my mess first.
I gotta' ask something...Does your unit have a liquid-line solenoid or does it use the expansion valve to pump down via a small 3-way solenoid that either puts the suction pressure or discharge pressure on the equalizer line on the expansion valve for the pumpdown cycle. Worthington was the only manufacturer to use that tecnique on their recip chillers..
Just wondering if your chiller had that Lil' feature....
