SOURCE: a/c compressor doesn't turn on
this could be a number of things but the most common is that the system is just low on freon. the pressure switch wont engage if the right amount of freon isnt present in the system

Yes. but it will make several things not work the same. The catalytic converter is designed for the EFI & could be damaged by the conversion, not to mention the chance that you couldn't pass a smog test if necessary. The fuel pump would have to be changed, or modified to reduce the pressure or it would damage the float needle on any carburetor. The ignition timing would have to be refigured to compensate for the difference & the valve timing may even need to be moved a tooth or so.
A trip to the salvage yard or some on-line shopping might be more beneficial. There are also aftermarket EFI system add-ons in the performance catalogs that will adapt. There are some Ford Truck parts places on line that may be able to help also.
Dealers seem to do what is the easiest for them, helpful when it suits them so the part could be at another dealership so you may want to just check a few. I had the same problem with OEM parts & ended up buying from a dealer 30 states away online & got everything my local dealer said was not available..
