The compressor was pulled 'cause the clutch siezed up. System was working fine till that happend. I am replacing all the underhood AC components 'cause I plan on driving the wheels off of it and Murphies law says if I don't, something else downstream of the compressor will crap out.
Besides, it looks like someone tried to pressure wash the condenser and folded/crushed about 25% of the fins. At $65, its not worth sitting there for hours with a fin comb.
I would like to take a second to again thank everyone who has turned a car from "fix it up and give to the daughter" to "I am keepin it!!
Without help from here, I would still be chasing down a miss caused by Bosch plugs, fighting to get the water pump off and cussing the little plastic heater hose nipple that I didn't know was a cheesy part(replaced it before it broke!) and wondering why my AC vents blow hot air (bad air mix controller).
