    Yeah remove A/C system replace with heat system only :D
    Or just remove the compressor and dryer and remove the radiator, you will still have the big box in the firewall but you will not lose any energy from the A/C

    Most any part store sells a part that elliminates the A/C pulley from the serpentine belt system so you don't lose any power. Then you can pull the A/C parts out to save weight if you really want to. (spelling?)

    I'm doing the opposite in mine. (removing the heat only and adding the AC). If it's anything like the earlier k5's just grab a heat only box and fan from a wrecking yard and swap it in. But for just removing the AC, it seems easier to just disable the compressor.

    Sorry, that's not what I meant. I should have said: Removing the Heat-only stuff and replacing it with Heat+AC stuff.

    heat only

    88'

    I yanked the A/C the other day. I'm thinkin for heat only I just attach the heater core hoses to the manifold or manifold and radiator. Get a new blower motor and cover the A/C hole on the right with sheet metal. As for in cab, I would just keep the same controls. Good thing its warmin up on the East coast (snow is melting).

    Don't ditch the AC compressor or at least the brackets. If you are dumping the AC, think about converting to on-board air.
