1720 Router Password

I have a 1720 router connected to another 1720 router via point to point T1 line. One location has just obtained a T1 line for internet access and the 1720 there is to be replaced by 2650 with two T1 wic cards.

Problem: the 1720s were installed by an organization that has gone out of business. No documentation was provided to the owners of the routers. I have console access in user EXEC mode but the pasword is not documented. This is a medical facility and the plan was to print the running configuration and program one of the interfaces on the 2650 similarly to the 1720 to allow a transition with no down time between facilities.

The 1720 is running IOS version 11.3(3)T. Is there a way of clearing the password but preserving the running configuration?
