    I'm taking all of the AC equipment out of my truck, but have one small issue. I'm keeping the heater. Will a truck that originally DIDN'T have AC be able to donate it's stuff right over, or am I'm gonna be custom making a box to hold the blower motor?

    BTW, if anyone needs any AC stuff, I've got plenty sitting in the garage now /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Hey Kyle, the non-A/C trucks have a nice heater setup. It is a lot smaller than the A/C style, but it will require welding/riveting a plate over your old large A/C evoparator hole. The non-A/C style uses a smaller hole in a different location. It will pretty much bolt up to your firewall with maybe a hole or two redrilled. Be sure to get the heater controls and all the other parts and it will go much smoother....I'd also suggest a new heater core while you're at it.
    Here is a shot of mine:<a target="_blank" href=http://www.jmartin.net/goose/Heater.jpg>http://www.jmartin.net/goose/Heater.jpg</a>

    Thanks MIchael.

    That's what I was looking for. I finished pulling the motor last night, so I've got tons of room to get in there while I'm waiting on parts. I've also got several LARGE peices of sheetmetal that will become the new cover on the firewall.

    Thanks again for the help

    Michael, is your truck originally an a/c truck? Just curious, since you don't have a/c, what is the purpose of the dryer in the picture?

    Thanks
    John

    Yes, it was originally A/C...just non functioning. I went with an aftermarket "hangon" setup and R134. There are some inside shots on my website. Very observant grasshopper.../forums/images/icons/wink.gif
