    Picked up a york of unknown size today at the junk yard. I can read the data plate but the numbers do not match anything found at On-Board Air. They are AMC-5461585 in case anyone knows anything:D

    Anyway. How do you remove the pully and clutch assembly. Do you really need the special tool or what?

    Remove the 1/2 nut in the center of the clutch assembly, then use a 1/2" coarse thread bolt and thread it into the center hole and tighten it up, as you tighten it, the clutch will come loose of the shaft. Don't loose the shaft key. It's in the shaft of the compressor and keeps the clutch and shaft alligned.


    It's real easy. don't be afraid to toruqe down the 1/2" bolt, it works like a puller.

    IIRC, mine took a 5/8" coarse bolt. An impact wrench was an absolute necessity also. Every other attempt I made failed miserably.

    This is what my tag looked like. The "10R" was for 10 cubic inch, and right hand suction I believe. It also had a manufacture date of 04/01. The 2 before the 10 is for 2 cylinders. 25212 is the part number. F is for flange cylinder head. E is for equipment (heavy duty) as opposed to "SC" for sub-compact. I'm not really sure about your numbers, but page 4 here might help.

    Yea I used a 5/8 coarse thread...and with no impact wrench it was rediculously hard to get that thing off...but enough elbow grease can make it happen...
