I am still trying to salvage
my Crosby system. System seems to have small pinhole leak in copper tubing right where in enters bulkhead to freezer
box in engine
room. I have now replaced 110 motor
, and 30 seconds after testing, compressor
froze up. Refer tech said maybe oil
leaked out of pinhole and now compressor
seized. ( info that would have been good before testing new motor
Does anybody know exactly what compressor this is? It is automotive type (AC Delco?) if I remember correctly. It's been painted so many times, I can't find any markings.
Tech is recommending something equivalent to fix-a-flat for copper tubing that you pump into system because he doesn't have room to braze without lighting
boat on fire?
This is getting extremely discouraging, but at this point I should have a 35 year old Crosby system with all new components. (A saying about "flogging a dead horse" keeps coming to mind)
My questions are:
1. What model compressor I should buy to replace?
2. Does anybody have ideas about how I can repair copper lines without setting boat aflame?
