    I have a '72 pickup that used to have A/C, but some of the parts are missing for proper operation (such as compressor /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) I would like to remove all the A/C related stuff from the firewall to clean up the engine bay. Will I need a different heater core or anything? How about the blower motor for the heater? Has anybody even done this? Thanks for any help.

    Get the complete heater only box/system from a junker. they much easier to find then a/c stuff. If you want I will trade you a heat only box with a heater core for your a/c box :-)

    I just installed a Vintage Aire ac system in my truck and have the original heater core, fan and interior/exterior plenums. Everything is included except the controls and cables....I had to use those in my new setup. I'd sell the whole deal if you are interested. Send me a PM or email at matnelson@yahoo.com.

    I appreciate everybody's offers on the old parts to do the conversion, but I have a donor Suburban that's rusted out that I can use the parts from. I just wanted to see if I needed to use the non-A/C parts to convert. Thanks for the info., I really appreciate it.
