What you would need to do is get the numbers off the nomenclature tag. Post them all. Or better yet place a paper over the tag and rub out the numbers so that you can get the whole tag info and post it. From there I will tell you which compressor you want but beware o' this. Most places will not sell you a compressor unless you is qualified to buy it.

Piping may need to be re-done,but any 2 and 1/2 ton R-22 AC compressor will work.
