Changed compressor, vacuumed system, no leaks. Hooked up gauges and put in oil charge. Tryed to put in freon low side went to 110 and high side went to 100. Compressor would not kick on. Please give me an idea where to start checking. Compressor is from salvage yard.

Have you tried to jump power directly to the comp to prove that the clutch and comp are functioning?
