Default Removeing AC pump from the serpentine loop

When I remove the AC pump what other changes will I have to do to to run the engine without AC?

Will most parts stores have the belt I need?

What will the changes in routing be and how will it effect the other belt driven accessories and tensioner?

This is posted in the general section as well, should I just have it over there only?

Default Re: Removeing AC pump from the serpentine loop

If you intend to remove the ac compressor, you can search past threads by others doing the same. Belt size is mentioned. While you're at it, removing the ac condenser coil and lines will allow better air flow thru the radiator and lighten the front end. Some say checking auto parts stores and asking for a non ac drive belt may work.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The Autozone part numbers are just the length and then K5 for 5 rib....so the factory belt for an Sx2 is goign to be 755K5.

Removing the P/S requires a ribbed idler pulley.
As answered in your other post in Tech section,there are many variables depending on the configuration.
On my 2000 sc1, I used the above chart and picked the one that described my SC1, but without the AC. I removed the AC pump, left the bracket, and installed the belt. Done!
