A/C Clutch cycling rapidly, A/C still gets cold

2002 F350 7.3 S/C.

I can hear my A/C clutch rapidly, and in no particular rhythm, clicking on and off rather rapidly. The A/C still gets cold. No refrigerant has been added since the problem started, no tampering with the A/C system whatsoever.

Before I stick manifold gages on it or take it to a shop, I wanted to make sure that it wasn't something electrical that someone else has experienced?

Thanks in advance!

sounds like an electrical connection problem. I know I always get that capture clip broke the first time I unplug anything, maybe just push the connector back down into the top of the compressor?

I super glued the connector into my lincoln mk vii back in the day to stop that problem.
