well if you guys have been paying atention to the NEBF threads the you would know that on my way back I had my AC compressor crapout on me about 50 miles (give or take) into the drive, with help from Geoff(jimmyfloyd), Nick(ditchboy) and Ryan(bandit) (and the parts locators back at Boostys) we were able to get it back on the road. only to have the NEW compressor go bad about 5 miles down the road, we then un pluged the wires from the compressor to stop the clutch from engaging and allowing it to free wheel. and allowing me to get back on the road AGAIN. I did get me the last 400miles home but got progresivly louder and louder (bearing/clutch griding)
(question below vid and pics)
the new compressor take not of the shavings flying out ( i'll pos another vid ot it tommorow)
atleast it was a flat bed
the first cluch to go
Now my question is, Do you think that this would have something to do with the Newer style ECC that Randy and I installed @NEBF? or might it just be a fluke that the first one broke from old age and the second broke from pour craftsmanship on the rebuild (it was a rebuilt AC compressor) or might it have ot do with the fact that i am running with a empity AC system?
I dont know how the new ECC would couse the clutch to fail (after all its mecanical and only works one way right?)
I can possibly see it being a fluke but it seam hard to beleave.
And i cant see how the system being empity would cause the clutch from burning out like it did
what might yo uguy be thinking, i dont want the next one to **** up aswell
