air conditioning - '84 5KS
I realize this has been discussed before, but the search engine is down, so I'm hoping someone will be able to help me.
The A/C compressor clutch bit the dust sometime before I purchased my car. I checked this morning, and the compressor seems to spin freely, meaning I can turn it by hand. I'm assuming this means I can replace/have the A/C clutch replaced, and, if everything else is fine, I'll have A/C. What I'd like to know is: 1.is this something I can do by myself? The Bentley shows a picture of pressing on a new clutch using a hydraulic press. Any way to get around this?
2.What is the GM part # for the compressor and/or clutch? Or the models it was used in?
Any other tips, suggestions, BTDT's would be appreciated. It's finally hot here and looks like it'll stay that way for a while, so I'd like to get this cleared up ASAP.
