Removing AC from 1994 D-90 (electrical)

So physically most of the AC is out of my truck (hoses, compressor, brackets, etc.), but I have simply disconnected the electrical plugs and left them where they lay. My question is that it looks like a lot of this stuff is wired into the main harness, so can I just leave it there? I am looking to sell the system possibly, so do all 1994 NAS 90's come with this stuff already prewired and it just sits there if yours didn't have AC or is this something that Land Rover did on a truck by truck basis or what?

Like would a non-AC 90 have the electrical wiring for AC?

Any ideas or thoughts are welcome.

The stuff disconnects pretty easily. None of it is part of the main harness. It just plugs in at a few spots. I just pulled mine and it was a bit of a PITA but not terrible.

I'll try compare mine this evening and tell you the differences (i have a non-ac 94 and one with the ac removed I can compare) but I think Ron is right.

Or come to HH on thurs and I'll bring the non-ac one if you want to compare against yours.

Come to HH and bring your AC belt. I'm missing one and it is NLA.

I'm not sure how useful you will find these pictures, but here they are. I don't see any difference in the wiring and connectors.

How about the connections to the compressor and the thing in front of the radiator? I haven't actually pulled the inside piece except for the vents and large plastic duct.

Gracias for the responses!

I hope you are kidding! The one thing I didn't do was pull the other belts to get the AC belt off. The knife took care of that.

That is a separate harness you will want to include with the AC when you sell.

The belt may be NLA, but you just need to measure it and find a replacement. It is a common shaped belt.

For the belt replacement, I think NAPA is your answer!

Ok I will have to follow it around. It looked like part of it pluged into a sensor on the housing of the top radiator hose. Wasnt sure if I could just pull that or what.

I guess it will be more apparent when I really look at it.

Thanks for all the info.

Again if you want to come to HH I can drive the red one and show you what it looks like with everything pulled (sans compressor).

Ok tell me which truck you'd prefer to see. If you want to see one with the AC removed I might want to put a top on it if it's cold out.

I am not a guarantee, so I would say bring whichever one is easier for you. The one with the AC is fine if that has a roof though because I can show you some of the issues I was running into for removing things and pick your brain if you don't mind.
