I've removed all of the a/c units from the bus. The tubes coming from RED CIRCLE was broken off anyway. Can I remove this unit from my engine since I no longer have a/c? If so then do I just remove the belt by loosening the GREEN CIRCLE Do I need to replace the belt after? Can the YELLOW circle just spin on it's own? This is a CAT 3126.

Just want to make sure this is all part of the air conditioning system correct? Even the fans underneath the chassis? I'm planning on gutting all of the a/c lines and units. If anyone knows a good place that will take these or if anyone here wants them, they're available.

Does it work? Is everything there? I would consider it if you weren't on the other side of the country. I'll check out what it weighs and see what shipping would be. I just had a 101"x51"x48", 900b stand up crate shipped from L.I. ,N.Y. to Ga.for $297. That probably weighs less than half that.

The item in the red circle is the A/C compressor and can be removed if deleting the A/C system. The green pulley is just an idler and can also be deleted. The yellow alley is the drive pulley for the compressor, it has a secondary belt on the back to goes to something below it, what does it turn below it? If it's another idler, then it also can be deleted unless it turns something important below it.

it all works to my knowledge

I believe the lift weighs somewhere around 300-400lbs. The second belt connected to the drive pulley in the yellow circle has the serpentine belt connected. I'm gonna be working on getting the compressor removed today and gutting all the a/c hoses.

Okay so right now we are working on removing all of the interior lighting. We started from the lights, cut the wires and followed them to the control panel below. I just want to make sure that removing the interior light switches is not gonna mess anything else up with my exterior wiring and whatnot? The last two pics are the exterior lights that we left alone.

Pretty bus! Since it is the same year as mine and also a Thomas I thought it might be similar, but itís actually a pretty different design than mine. Got a love those wheels though! And itís already painted something other than yellow!

It's got all the unnecessary lights and buzzers and seats and whatnot already out, gave us a great deal on the new tires too! I've been looking at your thread a bunch and have learned a lot. Mind if I ask you a few questions about your bus?
