I thought you had a great ides. I had pulled the skid plate last night. So I went ahead today and more closely checked the rotation. Unfortunately the clutch is engaging.

With egine off I could, with some resistace, rotate the compressor by pushing on the lugs which protrude from the end of the pulley. SWAG at 3-5 ft-lbs resistance, felt like seal friction. Don't know how much resistance I should expect at hand-turing rotation speed? The pumps are variable displacement so I don't know if this affects the torque at low speed?


The pressures were high on the gauges. So I don't think the r-134a is low.

Thanks, guys for the comments.

Any one have comments on relative merrits of the compressors available?
