    Is the clutch on a Ford air conditioner pump adjustable? I got a truck that the clutch wont pull in and lock up. If I "help" it with a slight push it goes in. Just wont try otherwise.

    A/C clutch on Fords are adjustable with shim washers under the engagement plate. Unfortunately that isn't your problem. You need a new electro-magnetic clutch for your compressor, very common on Fords
