I jumped the AC Clutch from the battery and it didn't blow for 30 secs. I could test it longer, and the car was just at idle.

I'll investigate the scotchlock tomorrow.

sorry, didnt' mean to miss this. again, hate to be the n00b, but how do I measure resistance at the coil? i don't figure I can measure ohms across the fuse block, like measuring the amperage.
