Default Delete the whole AC unit

I was wondering if I can take out the whole AC unit in my 1990 Nissan hardbody will it affect anything on the truck. My account compressor is out anyway so I'd rather just take the whole thing out. If anybody could answer my question I would really appreciate it

It won’t hurt anything to remove it all. Personally, I wouldn’t bother removing the evaporator inside the cab. That’s liable to take a while.

What is this A/C you speak of?

If you wanted to do the least amount of work possible you could simply remove the belt, although removing the compressor and lines would free up some space in the engine bay. My compressor crapped out on my old car and I ended up just taking the pulley off and getting a belt for the non-A/C model. It's even easier on these because the compressor has its own separate belt.

15 minutes at most. But the evap box would have to be reinstalled to restore air flow from the fan motor to the heater core.
