serpentine belt size for 1988 5.0 Mustang with options deleted?

I have a 1988 5.0 gt. The a/c has been partially removed. I want to eliminate it all together and remove the compressor. I also want to remove the smog pump delete pulley the car has and I want to remove the power steering pump and get a manual rack and pinion for the car.

Does anyone know if there is a serpentine belt that will fit with these accessories removed?

Yeah I believe you've gotta have a pulley in place at the compressor location in order to keep the water pump spinning in a ccw direction.It doesn't matter whether its the factory compressor pulley,relocated power steering pump pulley or a ac delete pulley,just as long as theres a pulley in place to keep the belt configuration workable.
