Question Kenmore sidexside compressor replace Question

Sears Model 106.8536860, 25 cu.ft.,1985. bad compressor has 4 active connections. refrigerant flows from high to precooler coil, then back thru compressor(maybe an oil cooler) and back out to condenser,filter/dryer, capillary,evaporator coil and back to compressor suction. I am considering connecting the precooler coil and condenser in series instead of back thru compressor so that I can replace the bad 4 connection compressor with a more availabte 2 tube one. Wife loves this old but excellent apperarance fridge with handi-door and the dual dispenser ice and water in freezer door (she uses a wheelchair and has MS). I lover her and want to fix it for her. I have refrigerant,flushing agent, nitrogen and access to any tools/equipment I need but have not bought compressor. Comments please?
