    Ice cream truck condenser replacement

    Hi guys, I need help with a little problem that is outside my expertise.

    I got a phone call and apparently an ice cream truck owner has an issue with a condenser on one of their trucks and it needs to be replaced.

    They are working with a tech (not me), but apparently the model number on the unit has been worn off, removed, or is in general unreadable

    Do you folks have an idea what steps can be taken next to find the replacement part. Are these units listed by the truck manufacturer, or the builder of the cube?

    Any help would be apperciated.

    I did read the thread at the top of the page and since I don't post here much, I will give you some info.

    I am a full time HVAC instructor for post secondary students. Our primary focus is on residential and commercial comfort cooling systems, and small refrigeration units. We do not do MVAC or MVAC like systems.
    My background is commercial/industrial HVAC.

    What "replacement part" are you having a hard time locating? Is the ice cream truck just a beat up 20 year old Econoline or Dodge van with a chest freezer in it, or is it something more sophisticated?

    Could you take the number off of the compressor and then contact a supply house for a cross.
