Yep, the link pretty much covers it. In case you didn't know, you don't need to pull the compressor to replace the clutch.

Thanks. I wasn't sure about having to remove the compressor, but I always try the easy way first. That's just the kinda lazy guy I am.

And
No, I haven't done it yet. I was waiting until it got really good and hot here in DFW so I can get a good sweat going. I'll do it Saturday and post up how it went.

I'm stuck! I got the clutch plate, pully and bearing off fine, but this thing is kicking my tail!
It must come off because there's a new one in the box with the rest of the assembly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I had about 25 minutes of how too with pics attached. Clicked "OK" and got some stupid error message that the page cannot be displayed. What a crock!
Oh well, I'll try again later.
Here is my other Ford

The coil is a tight fit on the shaft. Age just adds to the fun. it may need a little coaxing from a couple of screw drivers or small pry bars. Sometimes a puller with small "J" hook jaws works well. Don't forget to gauge your existing shims for proper re-install clearance. This will ball park you for the new ones for proper clearance between the clutch face and pulley. I try to stay between .015 & .030 thousands. Good luck
