Try removing one of the shims on the clutch. They expand with heat and sometimes make too much of a gap. Remove one at a time and just check it after each one to see if it helps.

what shims would you be talking about? and the shim would cause it to kick off and on?

My mistake. It is actually on the compressor. Not the clutch itself.

Yeah, that has to do with those shims. But when they get hot they expand too much and doesn't let it click back on. Same thing happened to my buddies last week and that was the issue.
