    Yes, I have an idea.
    And I have a question.
    Why would anyone install a second hand evap?
    Probably the last part I would try to cheap-out.
    Looks like 2.5 ton to me.

    Ditto. I wouldn't install a 2nd hand coil. That's like buying a bald tire. I actually had a guy ask about this today. I told him I wouldn't do it even if I had one. They get recycled almost immediately by our installers. Whether they're leaking or not.

    I'm going to install it because I'm broke, its free, and from a non-leaking working system.

    Nobody can stop you from doing what you want to do and it really doesn't matter to anyone what you do. You came on here asking what it was. You got a little bit of advice from people who deal with this everyday. Chances are that the removal process, then transportation to your house and re-installation will make the weak points on the coil leak fairly quick. Maybe not. It is the risk you assume. I'm hoping you aren't paying somebody very much to install it.

    I deal with this stuff every day too.
    I will spend practically nothing since I'm installing it myself.
    (I've been an A\C Refrigeration installer/tech for about 10 years)
    However, I couldnt find out any info on the coil, the 17 and the 30 in the model number made me think it was a 1.5 or 2.5 ton coil.
    the condensor is a 3 ton unit, and the coil had magic marker written on it saying 1.5 ton.
    Hence the confusion.

    If you're in the business. You should be able to get a GREAT deal on a new coil at one of the supply houses. Most of the counter guys will hook you up if it's for your own house. I've gotten some ridiculously good deals in the past for my house and my brothers house.

    Kinda of my thoughts too. Not saying the OP is this. But there are those guys that barely get by in the business though. Work enough to buy beer. Then go work a little more when the beer is gone.
