That's me. Otherwise, I am very dumm electrically, only basic stuff.
I'll pm you with something.
I PM'd reply.....

Yes, swap out coils (and thermal protector switches too, cuz apparently this ones bad). I cant just put on this clutch plate on thre OEM (car) one cuz , I thought I mentionedbefore, but, the spline is aparently chewed up on the car's comp shaft, and the plate center is splined. . You see, now with a bad spline, the whole comp is shot- only the magnet/pulley is still salvageable, Im guesing. Thans wghy now, Im looking at trying my luck with this junk yard comp, which appears to be good except for the clutch magnet, which is showuiing infinity on the ohms. 3.5-4 Ohms is spec.

Time to go in the garage- just finished lunch , got the free loaner clutch puller from AZ just an hour ago........

OK, bumped out the pulley no problem. No ned for the usless AZ puller kit. Now, magnet had clip DEEP inside. Mt cheapo AZ clip pliers are also useless. Need my buddy now to unclip this, and I assume magnet pops right out without having to yank the bearing.

1. busted spline can be mended. a good file will do it. you prolly mostly looking at some burrs to shave. all you need is to put it on and check how it grabs to the pulley
2. now that you gone so far - yeah, just take everything apart. I had same ordeal removing that snap ring on my Chrysler LeBaron. Yoou could use 2 awls to compress snap ring. all it takes is to pop at least some of it out of the grove, then even screwdriver works. be honest, I just make suitable tools in cases like this, I am very good with grinder and bending metals. I have multi snap ring removing tool, with some 5-6 heads, but I agree, it's very limited use. narrow flat head scredrive to secure ring in place + long needle nose pliers, to grab ring's end and pul it out works well too.

Right. Now, that idea of the awl is a good one- I will try it but remain cautious as the ring is DEEP inside the magnet- and narrow wall to work in down there, if I make myself clear, dunno. UK, thats a neat idea to file off the burs on that spline, but I should have mentioned that the big issue is that the bearing is visibly bent/exposing the balls. Thats what really made me decide to yank the car's comp and swap the magnets. At worst, I will file the burs until the splines fit, then get a new bearing, press it in, and that will alow me to utilize the original comp! Junkyard comp may be good, I feel, but it IS ugly!! LOL

you not gonna merry it, right?
yes, I know very well - done it twice - how narrow that channel is. like I said - as far as you get one end of it out of the groove, you golden. so you can grab on one end and yank it out. trick is to prevent it from spinning, they do tend to do so, hence narrow long screwdriver to help with that. it's no more than 1.5 inch deep, right?
reason I even mentioned mending anything is simply to test out componetry by interchanging them.

A miracle! Buddy put his $125 multi meter on the coil and it is a GOOD coil!!!! Yippeeeeee! (lesson- dont trust Harbor Freight meters)

So, now I will remove the good clutch backing from orig comp, press it on the newly aqcuired comp, put on the good thermo switch (orig comp) , and just swap comps! Already got the comp out of the car- its happening, guys!!!!

Happy Holidays, buddy.
Merry Christmas to you too, ol bud! Santa Clause came early!! Yipeeeeeeee! AC is put together, AND charged it, AND blows c-c-c-co-o-o-old!!

Cool, man. Too much. Now, keeping fingers crossed- I doubt it, but never know if a leak is generated. New O rings, of course. I will monitor it over the next few weeks/months.

Thanks to all here, esp UK.

Yup, just to confirm- added 2 oz of PAG 46. (removed one only 1oz). Its usually a guessing game, this oil thing.
