1969 Continental Sedan AC Questions

Hi Bill -

My a/c compressor clutch will not engage.The system is low on Freon-could this be the reason?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul -

FoMoCo did not provide a circuit to disengage the compressor clutch if the refrigerant charge is low or depleted during these earlier years of a/c.

Sincerely,

Bill

Thanks Bill -

Another question- does the compressor clutch have to be removed in order to replace the brushes?

Thank you,

Paul

Paul -

The answer is "yes" especially if yours is the factory installed compressor and clutch assembly.

Many thanks, I realized what I was doing wrong: the clutch holding tool had to be used to prevent the front mechanism from moving. Then it came off easy!

Thanks again!
