Jumped Klima Burned Clutch

I have No AC in my 87 260E. Bought it last year and have not needed it yet. The compressor would only run for a few seconds and then stop so I jumped pins 5&7 and the compressor engaged and ran. I had gauges on it and it showed 35 lbs on the low side while running (60 static). It was not making cold air and then I smelled the clutch overheating. The compressor looks newer.

Any ideas beside new compressor?

Thanks

Charlie

What was your high side pressure? Ambient air temps when testing?

Kicking on for a bit, then off is a sure sign the system is low or overcharged.
