Max. torque for A/C clutch

Does anyone know the maximum torque that a late model GM A/C compressor clutch can handle? I've been looking on the net for a couple of hours and can't find anything. I want to build a gas powered compressor and wonder if a couple of these things can handle the torque or if I have to get a bigger one somewhere.

Using A/C compressors is not a good idea for air compressors. The A/C compressors are designed to pass oil in the system for lubrication, not a good thing for an air compressor.

I'm just talking about the electromagnetic clutch assys. I have a large compressor pump that used to run on 575V. I don't have 575V at the shop and I want to run it with a gas motor using the electromagnetic clutch (maybe two) to drive it.
