i have power at the clutch and the compressor.........and the compressor is free....if a compressor was bad, it would be locked up.......

i took the clutch off and it was all rusted up and covered in black gunk.......i am going to replace it tomorrow......

Is your a/c clutch fuse blown? The black gunk could be oil from a leaking compressor seal. Not good. The rust?? Did you do a continuity check on the clutch coil to see if the coil is open?

the black gunk i think is tranny fluid mixed with dirt/debris....i had a leaking tranny cooler line that is right in front of the compressor......

like i said, i have 12v to the clutch whenever i have the HVAC controls in the A/C position......so i would assume that the a/c clutch fuse isn't blown.......

the rust probably is from the a/c not being used.....the 1st 2 summers i had the truck, the a/c wasn't charged and i never got it fixed, so it wasn't used......

off topic, but I'm thinking there must not be a "Virgin" bolt, nut, or fastener left on your truck...lol.
