Default AC Compressor mounted at odd angle

***********1. Enforce rules only against their foes (i.e., anyone who does not suck up to them) while exempting their friends from similar or worse behavior.

2. Silently boot someone and then proceed to trash talk the person as if the person was still there with an opportunity to respond.

3. Boot someone and then start a thread for the sole purpose of boasting about having removed the person, so as to bask in the praise of sychophantic members applauding the moderator's bold action.

4. If a person is being stalked or trolled, scold, warn and threaten both the victim and the perpetrator to stop it. If the victim protests, boot the victim for having defied the moderator's authority. Add injury to insult by allowing the troll or stalker to stay because the stalker or troll didn't talk back to the moderator.

5. If the moderator loses an argument to another member, selectively delete the member's comments so that the thread no longer makes any sense.

6. Selectively enforce the tribe's rules only against newcomers, newbies or people who are not friend with the moderator.

7. Speak about their actions as moderator in the passive voice, use the royal we, and otherwise take on a haughty, authoritarian tone. I mean, dude, you're just a moderator. ***************

Compressors are basically a pump. Could fry it if place it on the side.

I was wondering about something pretty much like that.
It crossed my mind that they were always found mounted in one way maybe because they are heavy and a frame strong enough to hold them at some odd angle would cost more money, but there is a concern I have about some gravity operation like you mentioned.

Bearing loading also crossed my mind. Some things don't like to be out of true because of bearing loading and the gyro effect.

Not COULD fry it, WILL fry it, very quickly. Small hermetic compressors are splash lubricated. A portion of the oil flows with the refrigerant throughout the circuit (compressor, condensor, refrigerant metering device, epaporator). The mounting needs to be within a few degrees of horizontal.

Well that's it then. I just gotta be r-e-a-l ginger when I manipulate the chiller component into the antifreeze tank so's I kin leave the pump level.
