90 f150 A/C Delete

Post #1 by Eff1 Shifty » Sun Apr 13, 2014 8:03 pm

as the title says im trying to "delete" remaining a/c components. i bought the truck without a compressor unfortunately so now im just trying to clean the bay up a bit. i have a few questions though. in the 1st pic circled in red above the a/c accumulator. do i just disconnect that and cap it off?

seemingly more important, in the 2nd picture the a/c hose runs into the radiator. does this just need to be taken off and capped loose? should i use a plastic or rubber cap? not sure if it matters.

you could just cap them off, but it would be better to scrounge a non-a/c plenum housing from the junkyard and remove the evaporator and condenser and all the lines for weight savings. You could swap the controls to get rid of the a/c settings too.

Since I'm in Vegas and we see the occasional 117 degree day, I went the other way and added all of the above. My '94 truck's a/c components are swapped from an '86 one. All fits.
1994 F150, 4.9L/ZF 5 speed, C-Vic police driveshaft
EFI head w/mild port work, 3 angle valve job
1996 long block, stock pistons, ARP rod bolts
Stock cam installed straight up (aluminum cam gear)
Hedman header, full mandrel bent duals, crossover, super turbos

So im wanting to remove my a/c evaporator and the box it sits in. I need to keep the heater blower, and could make some ducting or block off plates. There are 3 holes on the firewall and im wondering which ones I would block. Or the best way of going about it.

I took a few pics at the junkyard to get an idea of how things look inside the evap box and on the firewall
