My compressor blew up on me last fall. The clutch and bearing just fell apart. I simply reached up under there and cut the the fan belt in half and removed it. You stated that you purchased a A-6 compressor. Can you be more specific about what a A-6 compressor is and where you bought it?

The A-6 is the A/c Compressor that GM used for many years. It looks like this. More Information for ACDELCO 1521680 They come with a couple of different size pulleys, I think 5" to 6" but unless you are running at extreme rpms they all will work. There are many rebuilt units available for about $150 and up representing quality. There are also new units available like this. A C Compressor w Clutch A6 1gr 5 5" 12V New | eBay

There are also conversion kits to use the newer light weight aluminum compressors if you like.

I hope this helps, if anything else feel free to ask.
