Got this sad little rusted out Westinghouse WD-10 in the shop for a compressor replacement, but needless to say it was in bad BAD condition ( this is why you don't let your machine sit in a 6" puddle of water)

Basically the compressor fell out when the gentleman unloaded it from his trailer  wow, The machine has sentimental value to the 'Gent so he said do what you can... I had to fabricate a support railing even just to install the cooling deck back into the machine,   so just a quick show and tell of the repair,  yes he knows he could have bought another cooler for less than he repaired this on for & ended up with a more solid machine, but like I said earlier, it has sentimental value, So it's back up & running with a new compressor & at least it can roll around the garage without leaving a trail of parts in its wake.   Rusty machines need luv too...  biggrin

Yeah..220, 221 whatever it takes.
Remember, all it needs is a shot of Freon!
The Vendo V-83 is the '59 Edsel of the coke machine world. ;p
Spray painting does NOT restore a compressor
Because 11 is louder than 10...

Saved another one!
The cooler's appearance does not match the compressor compartment!

My six cents,
