Those compressors are designed to use the returning low temp refrigerant gas to cool the internals. It would pump, but not for long.

I have 2 giant compressors that look like the "Fridge Compressor" style.

Interesting guy on those videos. Knows just enough about a lot of things, just enough to be dangerous.

Good old Bristol compressors. Changed out quite a few over the years.
