    The electromagnetic coil that engages the clutch on my '91 S-Jimmy is flaking out. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have another compressor from a '94 Surban with a good coil, but I have yet to find a store that has the correct tool to remove and reinstall the clutch. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif None of the ones that Autozone lends out will fit, and Pep Boys sells one that only fits 1980 and older GM's. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Where should I be looking for these? I know that Snap-On sells a complete kit, but it costs more than just replacing the entire compressor! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif I just want to buy or borrow the correct tools so I can get the A/C working again. I'm thinking it will take all of 10 minutes to yank both clutches, swap the coils and then replace and regap the clutch on the S-Jimmy. Any ideas for finding these? Thanks!

    Hmm, the page of stuff you linked to shows just the one I need for less than $10. But they want another $10 for any order under $50 PLUS $6.95 shipping. So a $10 tool ends up costing $27! /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Maybe I'll have to break down and buy the whole kit...
