I don't want to start another smog pump questions so I'll ask it here.

I would also like to bypass mine with a shorter belt simply because it squeaks. Can I bypass it and just leave it in place as-is without plugging or removing any of the plumbing or the actual pump itself. Maybe later I will but I will but for now, I just want to get rid of the squeaking.

I wound up using an 85 and 7/8 belt. The 84.5 noweher near fit and an 85.5 didnt fit either so the next size napa had was the 85 7/8. Its wearing on the outside and I think it might have a little more deflection than it should but it was my only option. how come the 84.5 didn't fit?

You can just get a short belt and bypass it.

Read the fine print, those were not stock pullies. Always read the fine print. I got an 86in and its a little big when it gets broke in and warm.

You're 100% correct.......
Never notice that until you mentioned it.
