What is the mod # of the pump your replacing?
The condensing unit's label is difficult to read. It is a Tecumseh. I think the model number is 7A826640 though this number is not in any Tecumseh lists I have. The compressor model is: AE2415AA which decodes out to a low temp, high starting torque, 1500 BTU, R-12, 115VAC unit. The B/M number is: 2B503-2.

Tecumseh makes an R-12 condensing unit now that uses a similar compressor, condensing unit model AEA2415AABXC. The unit is about 9" high, the same height of the unit in my ice cream machine.

I don't see a similar condensing unit in R404A that has a 9-10" height. But I will check around some.
