    Manitowoc shop project

    Saving this one for a shop project when we didn't have much going on.

    Manitowoc
    M# AD0202A
    S# 0 93413 A0202424 01

    We pulled this out of a church a few years ago. Compressor was bad and evaporator missing all the nickel.
    I have stacks of old stock Manitowoc parts, going back to the M series in the 60's

    This unit got brand new:
    Water trough
    Drop chute
    Water curtain
    Harvest Rack
    Evaporator
    Drier
    Compressor
    Hot gas valve
    TXV
    Condenser fan motor
    Dual voltage timer
    Toggle switch
    Thermodisc
    Float valve
    Bin Switch
    Toggle switch

    And 21 oz virgin R12

    Just for fun. Excuse the compressor compartment, have a little tidying up to do.

    Cycle time:
    Freeze- 12 Min 11 Sec
    Harvest- 1 Min 5 Sec
    Total- 13 Min 16 Sec

    They don't make them like this anymore - and to tell the truth I almost miss them!

    Brings back memories. Good cycle time for a R12 machine if I remember correctly.

    That's just beautiful Zed. Great job.

    What year was that made? I'm guessing early 70's??

    Thanks I Appreciate that!

    I think I decoded it to 1972. We even pulled out and charged it with an old Dial-A-Charge for complete authenticity (and because the news guys had no idea what one was) lol.

    I was looking for my old Dial-A-Charge the other day to show my grandson (who happens to be going through HVAC-R school as we speak.... It appears that my particular Dial-A-Charge has evolved into some bizarre thing with legs and has disappeared... or was captured by aliens - either way its gone... somebody probably tried to donate it to a museum for the tax write off....
