I am in the process of pulling my engine and want to remove the ac hoses and compressor and mounting brackets. I don't have the proper equipment to fully evacuate the system prior to disassembly. What is a quick way to open and vent the system so it can be removed? I will likely be replacing the system with a Vintage Air setup.

Not that you would ever be caught, but the authorities don't take kindly to venting freon to atmosphere.

I have heard before that some shops may even buy the freon out of your system. Stuff is expensive these days.

Save everything, someone doing a restoration might be interested.

You might check on updating existing system to R134 as opposed to a whole new system from a cost and installing view.

if this is an older system and not working chances are good the Freon is long gone anyway.
