You clutch may be out of adjustment. Take a look at this. https://www.gmforum.com/mechanical-134/adjust-ac-clutch-plate-278951/

What is the best way to trap the clutch so that you can loosen the center bolt in order to use the tool to widen the airgap that is too close?Thanks

You can use one of those wrenches that have the rubber strap, those work real well.
