URGENT: Trying to find a replacement compressor
Coming back in from our test sail a few weeks ago, the compressor for our REFRIGERATION (word reefer replaced to allow slow Portugese people to understand - thank gawd they have good Port) system started screaming. Apparently, we need to replace the compressor (it's a sealed unit), but it's original to the boat (from 1984) and we can't find one. Pasting from an e-mail I received:
The system on the Boat is an Adler Barbour Combicold 20 AW W/ 3 Holing Plates and Dual Solenoid Valves. It has an Italian Compressor made by Framic... I called Adler/Barbour (Waecousa.com) and they have never heard of these sytems... It is about 20-24 Years old. I remember them as I installed about 50 of them back in the day. I have E-Mailed or called all of the people I could think of to find a compressor... Even left a message for Mike Adler and there are no sources that I could find....
It's going to cost me a few thousand dollars if I need to replace the entire system. Does anyone know where I can go? HELP!!!!
And the urgency revolves around the fact that I'm doing my delivery from Annapolis to Lake Champlain in 11 days and need this done before then!
