AC stops 15min into drive

My ac works great at idle and going down the road for about 15min and then the clutch on the ac pump kicks out. the freon pressure seems good at idle but when u rev it up to 1500 it drops down about 10 psi. the pump is sweating and making water like it should until you run it down the road for 15mins crusing.

any ideas?

Sounds to me like you're low on gas.... (10psi is too low)

Yep, what he said. Have seen those exact symptoms on several vehicles and after replacing the clutch (easy to do) it worked fine.

Had to take the spacer completely out to get the correct clearance. Going to need to replace the clutch soon.

Yeah but my compressor works great and don't want to have the system vacuumed and refilled when that's not an issue. My brother in law gets a discount at o'rilley's so he may be able to get it for less.
ac worked for my entire drive today.
