Why I am taking it out
1 it doesn't work as guy I bought it from, the original owner had never used it.
2 the reason he had never used it is because we live in Vancouver where a hot day is 30ish with a sea breeze.
3 there is this huge non working lump in my engine compartment with the associated plumbing and it is ugly and non sano with a rad as well so it has to go.
I was going to cut the belt because the drive pulley is stacked on the other one leaving less than 1/4" to the rad and as the belt is wider that that I would have to pull the rad to get it off.
Yes I will have the freon removed properly. Thanks for the comments guys, as a nubie it is nice to see that this is indeed an active forum.
