I want to remove the a/c from my 74' FJ40. How easy/difficult is it to do?
No big deal. Where are you located and I'll come help for the price of the A/C if it's factory!! If you want I'll even find the parts to fill in the "holes" left from the A/C (but only for first dibs on the A/C).
Depends on how mechanically inclined you are, especially if it works and you want to sell a complete, working unit. If your favorite tool is the blue-tipped wrench and you are trashing it, I'd say pretty easy and could be done pretty quick.
It just takes common hand tools. Back in the day I bought a Toyota kit for my 87 4X4 pickup and it was pretty easy to install.
Why do you want to remove it and what brand is it?
Curious because my next Land Cruiser project (FJ45) will have A/C and I'm interested to know if the one you have has problems or does not work well.
if its a 74 and has AC it is more then likely not OEM AC, but one of a few older or newer aftermarket AC units.
If its a Nippon Denso unit its OEM.......anything else is not OEM(in a 40)
most likly just a matter of unbolting the blower, all the lines, compresser and what not.
Maybe he just means the Air Cleaner.
What you do is unbolt it making sure not to break it. Box it up. And send it to me. I could use it here in the south.
There was no oem a/c in the United States prior to the 79 model year. Take a pic of your unit and post it, I have one for sale that's aftermarket, but only the in car portion, you'd need your own compressor etc.
yes, we need a/c down here. box it up and send it this way.
always easiest to take crap OFF your rig.
