AC compressor?

You probably want a mechanic to look at that (its under pressure isnt it?)

what the heck do you need AC for now anyways?

You can't change out the a/c compressor. You have to be EPA certified to pump down the system.

To swap out the starter simply take off the flywheel cover, remove the electrical connections from the end and remove the two bolts holding the starter in.

Then bypass the AC Compressor. A shorter belt can be used to go around it. I do not know what # it is, but it'* been posted before.

You're going to have to have a shop swap out the A/C compressor.

It may be able to be bypassed. I don't know if it'* possible on your motor, but it was on some.

You need to get a book for your car, if not an FSM.

I think that the AC bypass is for Series II only
