Well the clutch locked up solid and I am not sure what to do.
I have the Nationals on the 20th that I can't show up w/o a belt from the smog to the A/C.
Any suggestions to free it up.
I have beat it with a hammer but to no avail.
I have also disconnected power to it to verify it's not electrical, it is indeed mechanical.::angryfi:
Drat!

sounds like the bearing froze up. I don't think there is an easy cure other than rebuild/replace. One of the guys at the east nats had a bad compressor so he just installed the belt for the show then removed it when he needed to drive the car.
Good Luck
John

SHHHHHH, that's my plan but what about tech inspection when the SOB is squealing?
I disconnected the belt for now.
I may get a clutch from a friend's parts car.
A lot of work for a A/C system that doesn't work, perhaps I will take my points deduction like a man.
Thanks
