Need help identifying refrideration

I'm looking for help identifying the brand of refrideration on a 1996 benneteau 44cc. Previous owner only knew the engine driven pump was bad so he replaced it with a 2nd alternator as this was more fitting in his application. Im trying to identify the maker, there is no writing on the parts. I'd like to find an AC driven pump to take the place of the engine driven if that's a possibility. Any help would be much appreciated. A picture is attached, thanks

No picture attached

But if the lines were not capped properly It may cost more to get this thing going than to replace it.

I think it's attached now. The line is not capped, charging is that expensive ?

Still no photo,
But it's not the charging, it's what moisture may have done to the internals of the evaporator/condenser.

How long have the lines been laying open on the engine compartment?

Sorry it says it's attached and I can see it on my end. I can't contact the owner, but my guess it's been uncapped for 5 years. On fresh water though, the boat has been on the Great Lakes since 2001.

Re: Need help identifying refrideration

Don't remember the brand, but what you had was a cold plate with engine driven compressor. This page from Seafrost shows a similar set up, and may be helpful.
Engine Drive
There are 120 volt options available
BG Series
Your old system may have been Freon based, and even if not your best option may be a whole new system. There are also 12 volt system using either a cold plate or evaporator.
You'd need an refrigeration tech to know if what you have is useable or not.
