RE: [Chrysler300] A/C CLUTCH SOUGHT

Pete, It's probably the bearing

They are replaceable

NAPA should be able to source one for Ya 

Pull the clutch off and see if the AC still turns

Hi Group:


    It seems as soon as we think we have Anne's K convert ready to go,
something else intervenes.  The other day, while I was taking it down for a
new exhaust system, the AC compressor seized - smoke, terrible sounds and


    Surprisingly, a new compressor was readily available, and was delivered
the next day.  However, a new clutch is nowhere to be found.  None of our
local suppliers has any idea of where one would find a clutch for the new
compressor, which strikes me as a bit strange since compressors need
clutches and, from what I understand, the clutch seizes up along with the
compressor.  By chance, are these clutches ever rebuilt?  If so, by whom, if
anyone knows?


    In any event, if any of you are aware of a source for a new clutch for
our ac compressor, we would appreciate your letting us know.  The thought of
putting a 50 year old clutch on a new compressor does not fill me with
confidence when it comes to driving the car from New Jersey to Wisconsin,
especially since the car is inoperable without the compressor/water pump
pulley turning freely.


    Any suggestions concerning this matter will be appreciated.




Pete Fitch
