YJ AC-to-compressed air conversion question
I wanted to free up a few more HP's in my 4-banger by taking the ac compressor out of commission. Is there a way to remove the compressor and still use the serpentine belt? It doesn't look possible to me. I'm not sure how I could get more hp's out of the engine without disconnecting it.
While researching this I saw where a member mentioned converting an ac compressor into an air compressor for arb and airing up tires. But I can't find a write-up in the forum. Any ideas??
I'm also going to install an electric fan when I replace the leaky radiator and I read where that will give you extra power by removing the belt driven fan.
