Mark.

If you do the work, then the price is not bad.

If you are going to have someone do it for you, the total cost may exceed that of a new AC.

Also, check the start and run capacitors and the start relay, before you invest in a compressor.

The only reason that I would consider replacing the compressor is that my son is an A/C tech and will do the work, The A/C worked well up to 2 months ago but lost the oil and freon out of the bottom of the compressor because a rust spot.
I will check with Grainger today.
Thanks
