Will truck still operate without air conditioner attached?

Well, how is the air conditioner "unattached", exactly? If it's on a serpentine belt and you want to bypass the compressor, you have to make sure you have the right length of belt and that it's properly routed. If you simply pulled out the AC relays, the truck should still operate normally.

Difference between centrifugal compressor and reciprocating compressor?

Reciprocating and centrifugal pumps serve different purposes and operate with separate functions. Centrifugal pumps transport huge amounts of liquid at a time, but the level at which the centrifugal pump operates is reduced as pressure rises. Reciprocating pumps push liquid out through a check valve, but the amount of liquid that is released is limited. Due to the differences in how they operate, they are ideally suited for dissimilar functions.

Is a 1997 Buick Regal 3.8L Series II V6 an interference engine in case drive belt breaks?

This engine uses a chain to drive the single cam. Pushrods and rockers operate the valves on each head. There is no timing belt to break. The serpentine belt only drives the water pump, power steering pump, alternator, and air conditioning compressor. If this is a supercharged engine, a separate belt drives the supercharger.

What size air compressor is needed to run an impact wrench?

It depends on the wrench. Most impact wrenches available for homeowner use require a compressor that can maintain 85 psi under use. Usually these are the wheeled compressors with at least a 15 Gallon tank. -I have a small 2 gallon compressor that works for most things, but an impact wrench will empty the tank in about 15 seconds - so I need a bigger compressor or tank combo to operate that.

Why is it rpm goes down everytime aircon is turn on?

Short Answer: Because it takes power from the engine to operate the A/C compressor. More detailed answer: Under a given load, an engine will operate at a given speed when a certain amount of fuel is provided. If you don't increase the fuel, but you increase the load (by turning on the A/C compressor), something has to give, and the engine operates a bit more slowly. Therefore, you would have to press on the gas just a tiny bit more to get the engine to operate at the same speed, which necessarily means you're using a bit more fuel.

Why does the ac compressor cut on and off on a 96 ford e350 75 engine?

It's a cycling clutch compressor, doing what it's designed to do. The AC system is set to operate within a specific pressure range. When it reaches the high side of that pressure range, the compressor clutch cuts out to relieve system pressure. When it reaches the low side of that pressure range, it cuts back on. What you're experiencing is perfectly normal.
