The office has an old PBX system on the wall near the 66 B block. I need to disconnect and discard the PBX box and hook the internal lines directly to the B block. There are four lines installed on the block. The PBX has 9 four pair wires punched down on the right side of the block -the internal lines are punched down on the left side. Do I just need to install bridge clips and pull the four pair lines off the block?

It is not very clear to me what you are trying to do. Can you send a picture?
In any case, here in Australia, you need to be Approved by ACMA (a government body) to make changes to phone cabling, so make sure that you check your local rules & regulations

Now to answer your question, you it seems like you have 4 lines connecting your PBX to the outside world. This generally means that you can make 4 phone cables at the same time.

I am not quite sure how you intend to "disconnect and discard the PBX box and hook the internal lines directly to the B block". Are you bypassing the PBX and connecting handsets straight to 4 outside lines?

Yes, some pictures would be great, I don't think bridge clips will work, maybe some jumpers.

You need approval in Australia to change your phone wiring inside your building?  That sucks, or are you just referring to the telco side?

Yes, you can just use bridge clips. Just punch down to the correct pairs and keep it moving.
