Your LH picture shows, left to right, the fan motor capacitor, compressor relay, compressor capacitor.

Your RH picture shows a wiring block. Its purpose is to connect things together.

It would have been nice if your AC guys expressed more interest. Your compressor may be shot, but with what little you have posted, I suspect the relay is bad simply because yous guys never popped a breaker. Bad compressors typically melt internally when bad & pop breakers.

Thanks Tom, I wish they had also. The right hand picture is actually another view of the relay, the post in the upper right actually is still connected to the screw as it pulled right out of the relay. It had a number and I was able to find somebody (Johnstone Controls) whom can get it for about $70.

A suitable replacement should not cost that much.

Way too much.

My relay's packaging is no way near that robust, and it is over 40 years old. If it should crap out tomorrow, I believe I could find a suitable replacement for $20 or so.

Granted, I approach things differently than the average bear, but $70 is too much.

I'm all ears and eyes. Where can you find it for so much less? I'd hate to spend $70 and it not be the problem or only one of many problems.

A competent AC man can bypass the relay with a simple jumper clip to determine if the relay is the problem.

If you are up to learning new things, contact me offline and I will tell you how to jumper it. Life's all about learning new things.

Can't seem to find an AC man that is willing to work on an AS AC. I'll contact you.

Probably removing AC

I'm almost to the point of removing the AC. If I decide to remove it, I hope to be able to take it apart piece by piece as I will be doing this job alone. I'm not exactly sure yet how to remove the freon, which from what I can see must be done to remove the unit in two pieces (or more). This AC thing is at the point of holding up a lot of other progress, since I can't remove one of the interior ceiling panels. I think I'm going to remove the AC, prep for new AC i.e. make the 14" x 14" opening with framework. Then put a patch over the 14" x 14" and buy an AC later if I decide I need one. This will free up $$$ for other more pressing needs at this time and allow me to progress.
