A/C Compressor clutch

I've got at 5.9 ZJ and the Compressor clutch bearing was goin out so I bought a Compressor clutch rebuild kit from eBay. It didn't come with and Instructions showing how to install it. I'm sure I could just put it back together the way I take it apart. But I'm the kinda guy that likes to be on the safe side and have Instructions. So does anyone know where I could find Instructions on rebuilding compressor clutch?

Not trying to be a smart-***, but might wanna try searching either on JF or the internet. I've bought AC parts from ACKits.com and they have a forum for things like this. Give it a shot, good luck.

Here's some instructions:

1) Remove 10mm bolt in center of face plate.
2) Pull off face plate.
3) Remove snap ring and pull off pulley/bearing assy.
4) Another snap ring holds the magnet on.
5) The bearing is staked intp the pulley and must be pressed out.
6) The new bearing needs to be pressed in and re-staked with a hammer and a punch. It's most important to support the center of the pulley during these pressing operations because it can be easily distorted if it's supported by the outer edge only.
7) Re-assembly is opposite of removal.
