A model wasn't specified, but heres some prices for a '86 5ktq that you can 
arm yourself with when you go to buy your parts via a WorldPac vendor:

AC Delco (GM) style compressor by Four Seasons Reman - list price $301, 
WorldPac vendor's cost $173.97 with a $7.50 core charge.

NipponDenso compressor, reman - list $751.36, cost $449.91, $66 core
Four Seasons (Denso replacement) **W/O** clutch - list $727, cost $420.06, 
$100 core

Clutch only (doesn't list which compressor it fits, so I assume it fits 
both) NEW - list's for $535.54, cost through WorldPac is ***$96.79***, no 
core charge.

I hope that can save you some money, especially if you buy just the clutch.
