We'll see how it works end of the month at the beach

Glad you got it fixed. Having no AC sucks in the summer time.
Not understanding your last sentence though. You are showing a picture of a compressor designed to pump refrigerant (aka freon which is a brand name).
Ammonia can't be used with copper lines like the ones brazed to your compressor.Also ammonia is used in absorption units like a propane fridge and even 12 volt AC units. It is heated by propane or electric elements. The nomenclature tag on your unit should identify the refrigerant being used.
Maybe there is a new refrigerant out that I'm not familiar with (highly likely). I have been in the HVAC business for 40 years (started at 18)and the last couple of years I have semi-retired and have not kept up in the world.
A lot of these AC threads have gotten me curious about leaks, control boards and what not. When I get back home this week I'm pulling the top off of mine to see what has changed over the years besides the type of refrigerant. They used to use R12 and R-22 with mechanical controllers. The last I new of was R-134a and under-rated (amps)solid state control boards.
