A/C Removal…

I want to remove my A/C as I have not use it and want to do a custom dash.

My question is (yep I did do a search and could not find what I think I need)

I have an under dash A/C unit, in a ’87 YJ and it blows cold, cold air.

Can I just vent the Freon and remove all the parts or is there a better way to do this?

Thanks ahead of time,
Buck

Most any small garage will collect it for the freon. Or they will as long as freon prices stay high. If not, shhhhhhhhhhh

Yeah, shops'll do it, you may have to look a little bit to find a place that'll reclaim R-12, but I'd have to say most places would have the proper equipment.

Also - is your system for a 4.2 with V-belts, factory air? Would you be interested in selling the parts once your system is removed? PM me if you're interested....

JJorda,
Yes it is a 4.2 and I do believe it was/is factory. I do not know if it is V-belts or not-I have two belts and could post pic’s if needed.

Everyone,
After reclaiming the R-12 any tips on removal of the rest of the stuff?? Plugging the firewall?? New belt configuration??

Thanks again.....
Buck

2nd dibs after JJorda if you intend to sell and he decides against it. I need 4.2 with serpantine, but will gladly swap out pulleys to stifle the Arizona summers if the price is right. Let me know via PM. . . .

Thanks

i know this thread is incredibly old but i was wondering if anything came about with your removal. i've been trying to do research on this and haven't found anything good. how did you route the belt? delete pulley? shorter belt?

I took mine out and replaced the compressor with a york, for on board air. Lucky to find a 4.2 AMC pacer in the junkyard with a york 210R and the bracket.

i have been reading into the a/c to oba conversion and i think that might be the way to go. thinking i might just use the factory compressor and go from there

That's interesting. I didn't know you could have OBA from the factory A/C compressor. I am going to remove my factory air also but if I can turn that compressor into a cheap oba then I am all for it.
