Question about Honda Accord
The clutch will not engage unless there is sufficient refrigerant in the system.
I believe the 1984 Honda originally had r-12 which is largely illegal in the U.S. nowadays in that a certified mechanic must recover and recycle that kind of refrigerant.
I would recommend that you convert it to r134a if you can afford to do this, by putting new fittings on for a quick connect on the low side.
Add about 2 or 3 cans down at the compressor's low side (low pressure) which has larger pipes than the high side (high pressure).
Charge until the hose says you have 25 psi to 45 psi on the low side while the compressor clutch is turning.
good luck to you on this problem.
