The company says a common cause of co mp re ss o r f ail - ure and poor A/C p e r f o r m a n ce o n some Dodge Ram Cummins diesel ap- plications is a failed electronic viscous fan clutch (EVC). Fan clutch failure can often go overlooked, resulting in repeated comebacks. The new kit helps take the guesswork out by including a premium quality new compressor, fan clutch, liquid line with orifice tube, accumulator, PAG (polyalkylene glycol) oil and all necessary O-rings, gaskets and seals, all under one part number.
