...so the machine will receive an entire new cooling deck as well...
Did you use one from a refrigerator? Has anyone ever done that?

Huh? No, the compressor deck shown in the prior pictures is a new unit.

I don’t install used compressors.  I know some other people have installed old refrigerator units to replace bad compressors because I’ve repaired a few machines it’s been done to. I don’t recommend it unless it’s an identical model from an identical machine.  Otherwise you’re mixing bad apples with a lemon.  tounge

Cool. The replacement compressor assemblies don't look too expensive.

Here's the new Evaporator mocked up & ready for the lines to be brazed to the compressor deck down below, the blue color is just a protective plastic film that peels off after you are done mounting the unit.

The straps you see are just some cargo straps I'm using to clamp the lid-rail in place while I drilled some pilot holes for the new mounting screws, ( which worked out very well)

Well finally wrapped up the Vernors Quikold 1400WD

it's cooling like a champ & quiet as a kitten purring...  I've decided that the new evaporator style will be used in my future rebuilds, they have a smaller version that will make a nice conversion for an Ideal-55 or a Glasco-50.

I ended up moving the T-stat topside for easy access, plus I wont have to worry about the hot compressor area in the summer effecting the control range if it were mounted down below. the biggest pain was tweaking the bottom lid back to some resemblance of squareness so it wouldn't bind in the tracks, the core of these lids is plywood, so they can warp quite a bit. now they slide easy & seal well, I had to add some plastic glide strips along the side-edges to reduce the metal on metal friction, worked like a charm.

Thanks Eric, it’s been a fun project, BTW for those of you who pm’d me regarding the compressor unit, it’s a Copland R134a 1/5 Hp 950/btw model in conjunction with 99” of SUPCO#2. Capillary line , that along with the higher efficiency evaporator assembly, it’s running 33 degrees F at the #4 setting on the T-stat,    also I replaced the old cork thermal tape under the top trim pieces with a thin closed cell foam tape to keep the heat transfer from sweating up around the upper trim.  & between the tank liner & the lid support stainless steel channel.
