AC compressor clutch

Hi,

Is it possible to swap the AC clutch on a '96 302 Bronco without replacing the entire unit? I'd like to avoid disconnecting the hoses and lose the R134 stuff.

Thanks,

Ed

Re: AC compressor clutch

Yes of course it is...

Clutches are still pricey from the parts stores, but i just recently purchased a new one from some ebay store (based in texas) for $35.

you may need to borrow a puller (actually the right thread bolt will do the trick but not sure of the size off hand) do a search on ebay, if i recall the seller, i`ll post later...

Re: AC compressor clutch

I got the clutch from Autozone. It was relatively easy to get the old one off but, so far, I have not been able the get the one installed. The rear part (with the connector attached) just won't slip on. I'll have to hammer it in but in order to do that, I'll have to unbolt the entire compressor to get a better access for hammering. The problem is that the Bronco is sitting in a parking lot 50 mi away from my house. When it rains, it pours.

Re: AC compressor clutch

What????

Hammer it on??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/chair.gif[/img]

Sorry for the delay, sprint left me dslless for two weeks, but something MUST be wrong if the inner part wont slip on its just a tapered shaft,also you could damage the compressor by beating it on, wrong part maybe???

Again, something AINT right...

Re: AC compressor clutch

No, it's the correct part. I just installed the front part to use it as a roller for the drive belt. I'll probably have to use a strip of fine sandpaper to get the back part on. One of these days.
