Haven't been on Car Throttle in a while, figured I may as well show off a project I finished recently. Took longer to get the signs than it did to put them in and get them fastened

AC clutch

I have a Toyota I’m working on for a friend of mine. The AC clutch appears to be engaging correctly, but when it disengages it seems to not open quickly enough, almost like it is opening closing opening very quickly. I have no experience with ac clutches. Thank you for any help.

Brake noise after brake job?

Hi I’m looking some opinions here. I just replaced the pads and rotors on all four sides of my 17 Honda Civic. I torque wrenched everything to the specs I found. When I took the car out for a slow drive I got a noise. And this noise wasn’t actually under braking but a subtle and quiet pulsating grinding sound that matched the wheel rotation in frequency. I thought maybe it had something to do with the rotor coating. I used Autozone Duralast Gold rotors and pads. The rotors come with a black coating but according to them the brake pads are meant to take car of this and I’m not supposed to clean it off before installation so I didnt. I drove it for a bit with very light braking trying to isolate the direction of the noise but as I did the sound just gradually disappeared after a few minutes. It still makes noticble braking noise when braking but that I expected as it gets rid of the last of the coating. Should I be concerned about the noise that went away? I don’t like that it was pulsing like something was uneven but I torqued everything. I’d love to not have to jack the car up again and take everything off but I will if I have to. Thanks for any advice!
