    whats the correct method of removing the A/c in a 76 blazer with a 350. I would like to do a quick/cheap job and would also like to keep the heater. The compressor comes out easy enough but what about the rest? Do i need to cap off things?

    the PO of my K5 just pulled all the lines, compressor, condensor, and the brackets out of the vehicle... i still have the evap core and the accumulator, some of the wiring that runs to it, but thats about it

    as far as the heater still working... i think it does.... havent really run the vehicle enought in the last year to find out for sure :(

    the heater 'boxs for ac and nonac truck are different, the quick and easy way it to pul the compressor and leave the box, heater will still work no problem.


    i swiched to non ac in my burb, buy grabing the non ac system out of a junker, including the controls and every thing, i then sazalled the fire wall around the heater box, and mounted it on my fire wall and sealed it in place ( the holes in the firewall are different) this pluged my old hole and showed me where to cut the new ones then i just bolted the heater boxs on and hooked up the controls.

    the only real problem is that it left 2 smal round holes open, and the power wire for the fan that goes to the swich did not click in to the original conection behind the dash, but i just sit it in there and it stays so its all good
