My name is Billy.

If I had a choice...I would pass. Not so much the moisture as that can be purged with nitrogen and is what has made nest or homes that can be a concern.

a simple web or small nest can create havoc in the system. You can try to blow backwards with compressed air or nitrogen...but this is a gamble.

Having the lines left open is the worst thing that can happen for this coil.

If you are willing to take the chance....mechanically it may be sound....but is it pristine inside?
