there is an a/c installation pdf floating around m.net. just follow it in reverse. You'll also need a accordion tube inside the dash to replace the a/c thingbob inside the dash, and plugs to plug the firewall where the lines go through.
Steve, I checked the work order invoice for when my system was taken out. The only parts numbers AIM used were in-house stock codes, I think. You could probably call them and check what they were in specific.
I got my belt from a regular auto parts store, just go in and say you need a power steering belt for a miata without A/C. as for the tube, I just used some dryer vent from home depot and duct taped it in place (it is a duct after all) the firewall plugs are just grommets, I have those ducted over at the moment, but I was planning on shopping for something to plug them up with when it warms up.
It's eaassssssyyyy. Just bust out the tools and start disconnecting everything that's associated with the AC, the lines, condenser, dryer, compressor, etc. Mine was already out of freon (leaked out) so I didn't have to go anywhere first.
Just removed everything except the evap unit in the dash over the weekend. It was straight forward and easy. No need to remove the front bumper cover, just the splash tray and the "air director" that is in the nose. 1-2 hours of work, that's all.
If you are taking the compressor bracket off you will need a 50mm long 8x1.25 bolt to replace the bolt that goes into the block from the front of the engine.
I just ordered the following parts from Mazda Motorsports (much cheaper than the stealership prices quoted on Miata.net, about half price):
NA01-61-150A Air duct in dash that replaces evap unit
0187-53-134 Firewall plug
1708-61-031 Firewall plug
0118-56-241 Tranny tunnel drain plug
So this idea/rant/project is the result of having too many parts and resources laying around:
Let me start off by saying that I run an automotive machine shop, have been for a few years now, and kiiind of know what I'm doing. I've installed dry cylinder sleeves many times, and have the...
