68 Factory intgral A/C compressor removal.
My 68 Mustang 289 2V code C with power steering has factory A/C. I've restored/maintained my Stang as a summer driver. Haven't used the factory A/C for many years, decided to remove the compressor for easier access/service of other engine area stuff.
I have the Ford factory shop manual, the Jim Osborrn assembly manuals and the Jim Osborn exploded view illustration manual. My '68 is a Feb 1968 Dearborn Stang. I have removed the magnetic clutch per shop manual instruction. Have removed the idler pulley and brackets.
Would appreciate any help or exploded views/pics of how to get this thing removed. The Osborn repo manuals show the compressor bolted to the base bracket with 4 bolts. Two are accesable. The bracket is attached to the engine...one bolt is accessable.
Non of the bolts or nuts are stuck, frozen or rusted. Any suggestion on how to get the darn thing off?
