1988 AC compressor removal

The process might be straight forward but I wanted to double check before I went in there and started tearing it apart. The mount bolts sheared off so I need to drill them out but, I want to know if theres anything on top of the compressor that I need to watch out for during removal

I'm concerned about all the tubing that I see coming from the top of the compressor. I want to get this thing on a table to drill out the bolts and do some regular maintenance on it. I don't want to end up ripping something apart and having to spend more money replacing hoses and such

those are the refrigerant hoses...does your ac work or is the system empty?
the only "worry" will be if pressurized freon blows in your face.

1) Recover any remaining refrigerant in the system to avoid black ops dropping in on your garage in the early morning hours. Have a few cases of Becks on hand just in case.

2) Disconnect the 2 ac lines on the top of the compressor attached to the compressor manifold.

3) Loosen belt tensioner, slip belt of ac clutch pulley.

4) Remove 2 bolts running through ac comp/ alt bracket and drop comp down.

If you ac comp is salvageable, replace o-rings and receiver drier with orings, add refrigerant oil.
