Post ac compressor

i'm currently taking the heads off of a 76 gmc sprint (el camino). it has a 350 with ac. i started tearing it apart but stopped when i came to the compressor. i need to get the compressor out of my way so i can take the power steering off and make it easier to get the exhaust manifolds off. I can't do this though because of the ac lines. i know they have refrigerent in them and don't want them spraying around if try to take them off. Is there a way i can take them off without them spraying every where? what sould i do?

You should be able to dismount the compressor (with tube manifold in place) and move it aside enough (might have to hold it with mechanic's wire) enough to work around it.

If not, you should have the system evacuated (R-12 isn't cheap no more) and have it recharged once the repair is complete.
