Removing only back AC

Hey there,

We have 1995 International bus (DT466 Engine and Allison 3060 transmission).

It has 2 AC units, one in the front and one in the back. We had the freon drained and removed the back AC but want to keep the front one functioning.

There are 2 compressors in the hood and 2 condensers on the left side. There were 4 hoses that ran from the compressors to the condensers and all the way to the back AC. So far we have removed 2 hoses (1 set) and 1 condenser We can't find any hoses running to the driver's AC and want to get it hooked up.

Has anyone separated the AC's and advice on how it works??

Any advice on capping compressors or just having them removed?

Why you removing it?

With global warming and hot summer days reaching 105 degrees plus!
Would it work for you if you just relocated it or try venting it so you can get it out of the rear of the bus (bedroom I guess)?

If your in Florida I would be more than happy to remove it for you!

Our bus had two A/Cs, and we're doing exactly as you wish... Keeping the front & nixxing the rear. There was no work involved in separating them out, as they were entirely separate systems from the get go. I assume yours is the same, though I don't profess to be an expert. We've pulled one condenser, the associated interior evaporator / blower, and all hoses and wiring for that unit. We've capped the ports of the now-unused compressor and left it in place... theyre both identical, so if the one we're using fails, we could literally just swap the hoses over to the 'spare'.For the one we're keeping we had custom hoses made as we wanted the routing path changed, and also incorporated a bulkhead fitting for the lines instead of just a hole through the floor. Thought that would be expensive but our local shop did it for cheaper than oem replacement hoses would cost, using better and lighter rubber to boot. Before we're ready to recharge the system the amount of oil to add will need to be determined, but that's a job for our trusted shop.
