I’ve recently been given the daunting task of repairing the 1969 Dodge Charger SE. I was driving it around earlier this year and the engine started smoking. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that the A/C compressor was having problems. I purchased a compressor, but then realized further that it was actually the A/C compressor clutch that really had the issue. It seems that the bearings went out on the A/C clutch, which completely explains why it caused smoking in the engine.
