    Here's our estimator link. I hope it's of some help. My guess is at about 4 hours labor at the local rate for a new compressor.

    I don't know the local labor rates in your area so you may have to phone around and check.
    I don't imagine any competent, experienced technician would guarantee his work if you supply a used compressor so don't be surprised if they refuse the job.

    buying a used a/c compressor is like buying a used condom.
    you don't know where it's been and you don't know if it will work.
