Disconnect the wire, read ohms resistance across that AC compressor clutch coil, post that.

Without that info, you may just have a "gap" issue. What happens if you wire it like you did, and then tap on the face of it with a hammer, does it pull in (engage) ?

Have you checked the clutch gap?

What is the coil resistance of the clutch?
