AC Compressor ?

So I replaced my 2.7 with a 3.2 engine. But just recently my AC died on me..

Is it possible to adapt the 2.7 ac to fit the 3.2 engine?

Any advice/tips are welcome!

Thanks!
-Matt

It is, the clutch needs to be swapped onto the 2.7 compressor from the 3.2/5 unit, as well as the manifold on top of it, (unless you re-used your 2.7 a/c lines in the conversion).

I believe i reused the original lines..

This might not work though.. My AC stopped working on the 3.2 and I haven't narrowed down the cause yet. It was making the traditional grinding noise but now it simply won't engage... Would this point to the clutch as the cause?

Not necessarily. If you think the bearings were going in your clutch you can remove the belt and spin the clutch pulley by hand to check the bearings. Other first things to check would be the fuses and refrigerant charge, next the pressure switches, and power to the compressor etc, then mechanical things such as leaks, compressor, etc.

Its possible that the compressor was noisy due to low freon as well, so you may simply have a leak.

That's a good point - I never considered that

leak = low refrigerant => low oil (possibly)
