    not saying it could not or should not be attempted, just letting OP know what was in store ... if OP is serious and OP is qualified I am sure OP could get this going with the help of us from this website

    Wondering what the numbers on compressor are, you must know size of compressor and refrigent used, from that you will be better equipped to find right evaporator. I built one with a 1/2 hp compressor, and a 6500 btu single fan evaporator. Made a box in corner about 4*6, using fiberglas and foam insulation. I've used txv before, but couldn't get head pressure down, so used cap tube. Works great. Used a digital thermostat set for 35-41 degrees. The only problem i have is you must cover meat in plastic or it will turn black. No I'm not a pro, but worked on several smaller systems, it was a fun project, hope I didn't rile too many feathers.

    It is a R12, changed oil and using R134. I had two txv's. Both R12. Hi side ran close to 300, 80 ambiant. Gave up installed proper cap tube, charged till frost exited evaporator. Low side a little low but havent had warm weather to do any more. It was a fun project, still need to fix some air leaks, but will have to wait for warmer weather. Michigan too cold right now.

    A processor around here is around $100 a deer. If this project is for personal use, I hardly see the benefit

    We've established the OP hasn't a clue as to what he is doing based on his post. Maybe interesting isn't the correct word. Words like comical, expensive, clusterfu** come to mind.

    Just get one of those Robo things that use a A/C unit and let it fail in a year or 2

    The thing outboard of the big fan is the condenser.
    Why did the previous owner say that it needs a new one?
    What is the model number of the condensing unit pictured?
    What is the compressor model number?
    How big of a cold box do you need?

    Found this unit and the guy says it needs a condenser and a tstat.

    Looking online it seems that the fan with the copper going in and out is a condenser.

    Can someone confirm for me?

    Thanks

    Hi
    I think the setting of the thermostat for 35-41 degrees is a bit exaggerated?
    it's necessary to decrease a little and it remains my opinion and I speak of my experience
