94 GT with factory A/C and stock pulleys.
My air pump went out on me recently and Pep Boys wanted $400 + tax to replace (that’s after wasting 3 hours trying to convince them that it wasn't my timing chain or water pump). Anyway, I told them what to do with their estimate and crawled over to a near by parts store, bought a belt for a 94 GT without A/C and bypassed the air pump (fortunately, the A/C and air pump pulleys are about the same size.)
Anyways, that got me into thinking about bypassing my A/C as well since I'm not using it at all. I was going to pop the belt off and run a string to try and measure the length of the belt I need, but then I figured there are probably hundreds of guys out there that have already done this. So I was wondering if anyone knows what length belt I need and what the best belt route is, a simple sketch would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
P.S. I still have cats on, will not running the air pump damage them? I'm in Calli now so passing emissions is an issue.
BTW, I've already searched the forums and didn't find any info on this.
