Re: a/c clutch replacement help
now the install........ not done yet, got dark and im all p%%#% off. the electromagnet was supposed to be able to be tapped on with a screw driver on the inside, not on the ceramic. again, problems. just like and episode of american chopper with powder coating in the way that has to be removed. used a sharp pocket knife to scrap off powder coating, then had to fab a big round piece of pipe to fit inside and not on ceramic. then smacked the pi$$ out of it till it was where the original one was.
next the pulley, had to use a block of wood and beat the pi$$ out of it to get in on far enough for the snap ring, and again, had to remove powder coating,first. was not able to just hit the inner race of the bearing, and now im a lil worried i may have damaged the bearing. ...... last piece is where im stuck. the outer clutch. there is a tool for some GM compressors u can use to help push it on, but no tool like that for the HT6 - s10 compressor. the outer face is thin metal, im afraid to smack on it. anyway, this is where you put the key back in and again had to scrape powder coating off. i stopped there, i cant get final outer piece back on. if you fide a video for that or a tool, or anything, i would greatly appreciate it. seems the ht6 compressor clutch is a ghost on YouTube.
