Since I haven't worked with all brands. I'd like to have "basics" parts like: contactor, capacitor, relay, sequencer etc

Please let me know the parts I most have.

Thanks Y'all

Furnace blower motors- 1/6th to 1/2 HP universal in 208/230 and 120V(one each)
condensor fan motor universal (1/6th-1/3rd HP) one 1075 rpm and one 850 rpm
Capacitors o plenty
TXV's -I carry 4 sizes for R22 and 4 sizes for 410A
Filters- a variety of sizes
a 5-2-1 hard start
PVC and fittings for condensate
thermostats-programable and non for AC and heat pumps
R22 and R410A
Contactors
That will cover most residential problems in the cooling season.

Depends on your local market and what size of units and brands are most common. Marty gave you a good start.

Add a torsion band to the stock. That's not a complete list by any means but I'll use 3-4 of those items every day. Having them on the truck means running an extra 3 calls a day instead of getting parts.

A 3/4" step drill bit is very useful. Ram that sucker thru and insert your camera. Google step drill bit.

My two cents: get those caps in 440 volt as you can always go up in voltage but not down.

Example, if you come across a 65/5 440 volt cap that is bad on a job and you have a 65/5 370 volt cap you can not use it.

The other way around and no worries, if it's a 370 that is bad you can permanently stick in a 440.

I only carry 440's.

I totally forgot about step drill. Do you know the name of the black cover for the hole?

Keep your terminal box stocked up....double spades, compressor flags, butt splices....also keep a good supply of big blue wire nuts. I replace a lot of those during heating season. Sequencers, contactors, fan relays (the Dico switching relay will work in most applications) and every dual cap combo from 25/5 up to 50/5 should be there, as well as a couple of hard starts. Thermostats, limit switches, fusible links, transformers.......there's no such thing as having too many parts! I also keep a bunch of schraeder valves and caps on hand at all times.
