    The fourth picture seems to ring a bell.

    Well, they're in the right place I guess because the phrase "Oh my God" comes to mind when I see them.

    I would almost have to say that the tall slender unit with the disconnect is an old GE from mid to late '60s vintage, at least 7.5 ton or more. The other dual condenser fan unit puzzles me. There is an older AT&T CO building north of me that has several of those units with the tall fan grille domes, they kind of look like the standard GE residential units from back then, but the grilles look too tall.

    OK, I've researched it further and yes, that is definitely a Budweiser.

    Sorry Kev, fooled you on #4. It was really PBR! I'm old, remember.

    Speaking of old, Silver, you nailed the tall, thin unit. That's the one I didn't know. Had to fire up the 40x digital zoom on the pocket camera to read the tag falling off the back. The other one should be pretty easy. Looks like their smaller units but with 2 fans.

    Absolutely! May very well have Spine Fin condensers. I sure didn't know the tall ones. How did you get them?

    I got a hundred bucks that says that all the "oil" filled run caps are still good in the GE.

    R-500 I think.No. I'm sure.

    PBR stored in a improperly marked clear glass container, left unattended in direct sunlight!!!!. That's wall of shame. And please tell me that ain't a straw.
    Never argue with a crazy man.
