A/C compressor noise

My Bryant compressor started making some noise. It's approximately 25 years old. R22. High pressure is 225psi and low is 69psi. 93 outdoor temp.
Is it shot?
If it is can the condenser be replaced or do I have to replace the whole system?
Here is a video of the noise it is making.
Thanks in advance for the help.

We don't discuss system pressures per the directive from the DIY admins. A trained HVAC tech should be interpreting those pressures and acting according.


By the high low pressure.... and the sounds it's making the compressor does have a problem. Possibly a valve problem. If the evaporator inside is in good condition.... a replacement condenser using R-22 should still be available. However, with the age..... it might be time to upgrade both the condenser and the evaporator coil with units using the newer refrigerant.

Looks like it's time to upgrade.
