chevy questions

a buddy of mine has an 84 chevy (full size) silverado.
It has the 350 in it.

the plan is to remove the non working AC, but to retain the heat. What can we remove?

The other question is this: There is a rear shackle inversion method for gaining height in the rear. Well, we are going to attempt this to remove the blocks the previous owner installed. But, i dont know what year/make/model truck to get them from. Any suggestions?

Re: chevy questions

You can remove the compressor and all the lines in the engine compartment along with the accumulator and the condensor in front of the radiator. If you want you can remove the evaporator from inside the air box in the cab. Might take some time though. As far as the shackle flip, here it is:

Re: chevy questions

removal is not a prob, the whole truck is already gutted, just needed to make sure what exactly can be removed.

Re: chevy questions

Just keep the heater core, the hoses going to the heater core, blower fan, and the stuff on the inside of the cab that controls the defrosters, and level its on. Every thing else can pretty much go.

Re: chevy questions

assuming we remove the compressor, we will need an idler to take its place, right? Or can we just get a different belt that is shorter? If so, do you have any idea what length offhand?

Re: chevy questions

just go to the parts store and get a belt for that truck *WITHOUT* air conditioning.
For instance, just ask them for a belt for such and such truck, and they'll ask, "a/c or not?" and this is where you say "nope, no air"..

Re: chevy questions

Since its an 84 it should still be v-belts which means there is no need for an idler pulley our diffrent belt. Just take off the belt for the A/C compressor. The should be a seperate belt for each accesorie. Though the A/C belt probably also goes across the power sterring pump but that dosent matter.
