Pretty sure the clutch is engaging the compressor

Greetings Gilly,

Pretty sure the compressor was turning as freon did show movement in the sight glass and there was a slight temp difference between the intake and outlet of the compressor lines. I had given the idea of a worn compressor some thought, but that one to seems unlikely because it only saw use most likely three months out of the year. I also gave thought to the expansion valve not functioning correctly. Any ideas on how to tell if the valve is operating properly? As far as taking pressure reading of the system, do you know what pressure I'd be looking for? If you do let me know and I'll hook up my gages to the system and see what they are.
