Compressor Replacement Problems

Here is my problem. The clutch on my compressor was vibrating and creating noise. I cut the belt and went and got a used compressor. When I took the old compressor off, the bearings in the clutch were in pieces. After replacing both the old clutch and compressor with the used clutch and compressor, I released the freon by opening the low and high port valves and then put freon into the low pressure port. Initially the pressure was 0. As I added the freon, the pressure climbed up quickly. In all, I put in 1/3 of a can (4 oz.) and the pressure was over 80 psi. Now, the clutch is not engaging when I turn the AC on. I am noticing a slight increase in the RPM's when I turn the AC button on, but no cold air. Can someone let me know what I did wrong and how to fix the problem?

You are not going to be able to diagnosis your problem until you Vac/recharge the system properly. There are no short cuts with AC repair..Hope this helps..
