My suspicion is that it has some thing
to do with the dye fooling the pump into thinking there was freon in the
system. What do you guys think?

Robert, its quite a different smell when that clutch goes isn't it ? :o)
After my first time the next time I smelt it when driving my 4 Runner I had
the knife in my hand when I left the cab ready to cut the belt. I also had
it seize on my 80 just once too.
I am used to using Toys in hot climates where the aircon does get a lot of
hammer. So have seen plenty of systems refilled. So please do not forget
that the pump does not just circulate gas and dye, otherwise it would seize
immediately. The fitter should also put a specified quantity of lubricant
(usually a synthetic type) into the system before the dye and then finally
the gas.
So first, ask yourself if you remember seeing him put the lubricant in
before the dye and gas. But systems are always filled with dye right from
new and then whenever serviced - in my experience anyway.
So, suspect lack of lube, the dye is innocent !

[SPAM][BL] Get together

Hi, This is a message for Jon ( TOY 80 )
Hello Jon, I have been meaning to contact you for some time as we appear to
be neighbours both here and in Cyprus. I live in Haddenham Bucks and have a
LJ70 here,and for about three months I live in Paphos Cyprus where I have a
BJ 40. Perhaps we could get together somtime and talk Landcruiser?
Regards, Roger Cox
