As long as it is 220 volt and R22 anythang would be better than what they have now. I might just make a run to mississippi and see if they have a Katrina compressor laying around. The damn trouble is we have a steel mill that is making rebar here and another german steel mill being built dammit. They are paying big money now for scrap metal that used to be worth nothing. My buddy took 4 washers and a freezer over the scales and got $50 bucks, it used to be you were lucky to get $5. You cannot even find appliances like you used to. The world is going to hell.
