Original AC units free for the taking

Hello all. I figure I'll give a bit of notice...

Come January, I'll be starting the build. One of the first things that I'll be doing is pulling the 2 interior AC cabinet things above the seats and the "2 coils and fans" units mounted under the chassis.

Are they of any use to anyone? Come pick them up or pay for shipping and they're yours; otherwise, they go to the local scrap yard.

Cheers!

1) what model bus are they coming out of?
2) Are these engine driven compressors?
3) where are you located?

Now I'm sorry that I "threw away" one for an SV when I moved out here...
Too much stuff to bring from CO to OH...
and now I own a bus...

Right?
Just a zip code will do -- don't need any personal stats or SS#'s...

(if it was near enough to me -- and what I needed -- I'd even come help you remove it -- if you wanted the help...)

Go to the UserCP in the upper left and fill out your profile with your bus info and your location, makes it easier to deal with questions and issues. Where is the bus located?

I'm interested if anywhere near GA. ... I may still be interested in January (anywhere east coast or midwest) if a prospective job pans out.

I'd come get them within 2-3 hours of north east TN.
Just PM me if you aren't farther than 3 hours of Johnson City TN, and when I could come pick em up.

The single biggest mistake I made on my first bus was removing the road air conditioning.

Roof a/c's or mini-splits will not keep you cool in the driver's seat in 80+ temperatures.

Ac units update

Hi all. Sorry for the delay in replying to everyone here. I'm going to try to attach some pics to help identify what it is that I have here. These ac units appear to be engine driven. 2 interior ceiling mounted cabinets and 2 under-chassis radiator / dual fan units... And all the attached hoses and hardware that I can reasonably salvage.

Ps. I just updated my user info... Located on Vancouver Island.

Darn and here I am flying up to Vancouver in about a week but AC parts are a bit too big to fit into my luggage. I'm sure customs would be interesting too with a crate of parts.

I wish I could've saved my Transair interior units but they were both built into the lugggage racks and I hacked the crap out of them trying to get the racks into useable pieces that could be safely removed by one person.

Oh well, there's still the engine compressors and the underbody unit that somebody else could possibly salvage.

I should mention, seeing as @WIbluebird brought it up, that the engine compressor disappeared during the engine swap - long before I took possession of the bus.
The hoses are still forward of the firewall (neatly crimped and bundled), in case someone needs the whole works... But as soon as this freak snowstorm clears out, I'll be getting started on the dismantling process. And I have no place to store stuff, so if anyone in the area is interested, ya better speak up ��
