I was wondering if it’s possible to do an AC delete on my 420a?

My ac does not work and I was wondering/hoping if anyone knows how to do so?
I would might as well take it off and have a little more space in the engine bay.
Please if anyone knows how to do this or has done this let me know ! This is something I actually wanna do if possible.

As you can see I have all the working space I need to remove it but I need guidance!

Getting caught on what? I don't recall having this issue. It might just be the weight of the compressor since that's the last bolt holding it on. Try holding some weight off it while you remove the bolt.
That bolt
, I tried keeping the bolt on top in to keep the weight leveled and used a wrench but the wrench wasn’t helping much, I wrench but then it gets stuck and can’t get the wench out.
I tried doing it regularly but it doesn’t bite

Either the bolt is long and I won’t be able to get it out or I suck at wrenching LOL.. gonna give it a try later on I gave up for today.

Side note, you have (or had) a pretty nasty oil leak. Looks like it was the valve cover gasket with the oil on the front and side of the head. Hopefully you're installing a new one when you put the valve cover back on...

Probably why your ac didn't work.
When the OP said it didn't work in the beginning, I assumed it was out of freon. But don't release any into the air. 95% of people that dont have the a/c working are out of freon, usually compressor related, for my guys. If you have pressure, I would have left the A/C ON THE CAR myself if it was a 420a car. Even my 90 GSX still has all the parts on it and I want to replace it all and recharge it for a nice cool quick ride!
Thanks to all that helped this member out!

Yeah I was wondering what that was. But Yes I will be installing new gaskets when I put them back on.

Hey bro what bolt sizes are these? I some how lost my old ones so gotta go get new ones.
It’s pretty long and it goes into the bracket for PS. Do you know by any chance? If not that’s okay because it is a very specific question. Lol photos down below

If I remember correctly they're m12x1.25. I had to replace one too LOL. Don't hold me to it because they could be m12x1.5 as well. Just take one with you to the hardware store for comparison to make sure it's right. You can tell if you have a good eye.
