Question about 1994 Ford Taurus
No - because of the routing of the belt around the idler pulley (above "A/C" in diagrm below)- there must be an AC pulley - or dummy pulley of the same diameter installed.
Getting a shorter belt and eliminating the A/C pulley cannot be accomplished because of it's proximity to the flywheel - and must go on top of the idler pulley so there is enough contact friction to drive the belt fully.
