    i've been on the fence about doing this for years now. I think this is one of the things that fall under the category of street vs. strip mods. mine doesn't work and hasn't for years now but i just can't get myself to actually get rid of it.

    Im going to pull mine out this monday. If anyone needs an AC system PM me Im not going to keep it. My system has been discharged for quite awhile now and I'm cutting weight for the track. Plus it cleans the engine bay up and does not make changing plugs or wires a PITA anymore

    lol,
    i never used it,so it made no difference to me.
    i'll give Sal a hand when we both have time.
    he just moved,so i imagine he wants to get settled in first.

    the power steering,a/c compressor bracket.
    its held to the bracket by the 4 long bolts that go through the side of the compressor

    Fresno doesn't get too bad, does it? It's supposed to be 112 here today, I need to get my a/c fixed! A little off subject...but how hard is it to polish the a/c and and alternator brackets?

    it can get to around 115*.

    as for polishing,i dont have the patience for it.
    that may be a question better answered by The_Mustang.

    Everyone keeps talking about how much they need their a/c in the summer.....am I the only one that would love to have my a/c but if I did have it I couldnt drive my car longer than say.....30 minutes in the summer? Perhaps I'm not that streetable. Anyone else have crazy underhood temps as it is, not to mention hot fuel problems!!!

    Excellent writeup! I did this a year ago, and have no regrets. It's been really hot here this summer, but so far I haven't missed the AC at all. Last week, it got up to almost 80!

    Thanks for taking the time to do the writeup. Guys like you make this a great site. Guys like me just rip stuff out, don't take pictures, and sponge off guys like you!

    Great write up Harvey. I just removed my AC compressor (front seal leaking freon) with lines a few days ago and your pics helped tremendously. I'd just add one tip. When you remove the battery, it's better to remove the plastic battery tray as well (just two 5/16" bolts) so you'll have a lot more room to get to the two front compressor mounting bolts. The compressor (with the four mounting bolts) weighs 15lb.

    Not a problem. Glad it could go somewhere so it will be used and not sit in a corner in a box in the garage

    I weighed all of the components (compressor 15lb, condenser 7lb, dryer/accumulator 5lb, pipes 6lb) and the total came to 33lb.
