Ac compressor locked

Will be replacing the compressor, condenser, and orifice tube tomorrow. Already ordered parts and got freon. Getting a vacuum pump and gages tomorrow. Anybody have any tips? Never worked on AC system before so anything is welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Replace the dryer/receiver also, it filters all the chunks before the orifice tube

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Probably a dumb question. But the Chilton's manual doesn't say and neither do the instructions with the compressor. Anyone know how much TOTAL refrigerant oil is supposed to be in the compressor?

Lube orings with pag oil before putting things together. A new compressor should have the proper amount of oil in it, but itís wise to double check. Since the compressor came with instructions, it probably isnít oem. Flush all your lines to get everything out from when your compressor took a dump, and get a new drier.

If youíve never done a/c work before, Iíd save the frustration and pay someone to do it.

I've never done ac work before. But I wanted to tackle it, I don't pay anyone do do anything usually. If I can fix a helicopter, I can fix this thing. I bought a four seasons fs10 compressor. No idea what brand is. It stated specifically it had 3 ounces precharge, but I found the proper charge. Everything is back together and running properly!

Glad everything is back together and working as it should 👍. I find helicopters are easier to work on than cars, but I like your attitude.

Just wanted to throw an update on here. I have a few miscellaneous unrelated issues with the truck but the AC is running strong and cold! Never hurts to jump in feet first to learn something new!
