Anyone who did a AC removal????

There's no way I can get the AC work again.
I bought a shorter belt and thinking to remove the AC compressor.
I really wanted everything to work, but it is to much work and I need to get the project as low weight as possibly
(regulations)

I'll don't remove AC compressor right now, need to start engine in truck first.

Here is the 7,3L Excursion donator.
Bought it 6hours from my place only 55000miles on speedometer.

Your username is intriguing to me
I live below a mountain called flatiron, and it has black marks from low flying aircraft

Ok, Cool. My first custombuilt car was named Lowflyingflatiron. It was really low and a lot of iron.

Your mountain story was way much greater. ⛰🔥✈

Thanks for sharing 😁

Need to get the turbo and up-pipe off, to get the engine in right position. Ordered parts from Rockauto. It takes a week or 2 to get it.

Engine mount plates did I find and I'll get it in a few days.

Have a few things to do...
1... I'll think I'm going to the american car junkyard and see if they have fuel line from a Crew-cab. My fuel lines are 1meter to short.

2... Need to take a look in the fuel tank and see so it's ok

3... Swap rear axle

4... Mount fuel tank

Have some electrical issues.
Someone here on this forum told me, I need the ABS modul. I don't have it anymore, I sold it🤔..



I'll make it fit:ROFLMAO::cool:
