Question for the a/c guys...

I'm about to start an LS swap and I have the Novak a/c kit. I'll be replacing the dryer and the factory compressor with an R4 compressor.

My question is that it requires custom line work and for the system to be fully flushed/filled and oiled.

Will I be ok with running the motor with all the accessories hooked up as long as I don't connect the a/c connector? Ill have about a 40 mile drive to the a/c shop to get the lines ran and the a/c serviced.

Wasn't sure if having the belt spinning the pulley would cause any problems. I'm assuming as long as it's not powered up and the clutch engaging it should be an issue.

If you're not turning the pump, you will be fine. I used an AC pump as a air compressor for years, with no problems.
