Removing On board AC - SEE PICS - Help

Hey peeps,

I a ways into my conversion on an 1989 Bluebird All American with an 8.3 Cummins in the front. Iíve removed everything AC related but pictured items below: hoses, and AC motor?, and belt?

Iím moving the rig to a new plot of land in Knoxville and need to know if capping these connections are ok, or if I should be removing the entire unit.

Thanks in advance for the input.

You can plug them to avoid contamination. Be sure that you remove the AC clutch wire so that the pump does not gets activated. Ifthe belt only drives the Ac pump then remove the belt.

Good luck.

what joe said, unplug it, and pull the belt if it only drives the A/C compressor.
