GE A Coil help needed


Hi All,
Great forum you have. I have an old (1978) GE A coil unit removed from one of my split systems. I'm curious if anyone has the ability to help me source a replacement?
The A coil was found to be leaking and my infrequent A/C guy told me 1500 labor to replace. A bit much I thought.
I got the old unit removed this morning, an hour or so, and now need to source the replacement.

Thanks in advance!

Ain't none. GE hasn't made a central A/C system since 1983.

Based on this units longevity, I'd say that's a shame.

The dimension of the uncased coil are 17H x 19w x 20d. Fittings are on the right looking at the coil. I believe its a 3 ton unit. Any generics perhaps?

Running low on refrigerant could have damaged the old compressor. Sure you want to put a $600 coil on a 32 year old AC?

I've been told that there is a possibility of having to repair the compressor, if that becomes the case I will.

What I don't have is unlimited funds to drop the latest, greatest, high dollar, ultra efficient system in place. If i can find a workable coil to replace the one I have, I have the tools, training and experience to do the install. Then, if by chance the compressor is bad, I can replace that too.

The coils I have tracked down are no where near 600, more like about half of that. I asked for a recommendation to source the part required on the assumption that there are many other knowledge, mechanically inclined individuals who don't have the bucks, but do have the time to work the repair. This seams like a place for kindred spirits.
