On a 3.0 OHV you can not bypass the a/c pulley. You either have to replace the compressor or you can buy a pulley and bracket that takes the place of the a/c compressor. You can find these at your local parts store. You other option is to find a used a/c compressor. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.

How to install a clutch pulley for the compressor


i removed the compressor.
there is an 8 mm bolt that holds the hub on. remove the bolt and slide the hub off.
careful not to lose the shim between the hub and shaft, its small.
then snap ring pliers remove the snapring, tap the pulley off. if the bearing went bad, inspect the compressor case closely for damage.
if your replacing the coil, it is pressed on, use care when installing the new one.
