Dual Capacitor Replacement

Folks we need to have a moment of silence in memory of a Bristol 2 ton Goodman compressor. My good buddy called me and I diagnosed a bad capacitor over the phone so he gets one and installs it cuz it was SO HOT and he could not wait until I got there tomorrow, he just could not stand it. Now people a word of caution is in order here. If you hook the capacitor up incorrectly you CAN fry the compressor motor windings. Be careful out there and if you are unsure of where those pesky little wires came off get some advice before firing that puppy up. Hmm lets do some addition here New compressor 350 bones at least, refrigerant recovery 200 bones or so, brazing work with new filter drier 250 bones or so, recharge and test 200 bones or so, service call 85 bones. Bad thing is the boy is STILL HOT LOL and will be for a while now. How in the world did people ever live without AC??

Well, at least the HVAC guys work for "bones" where you are, around here they want hard cash...

Must have a lot of dogs, I guess....

Given the choice I'd rather works for beers after the job is done than bones.
