Question about 1989 Ford F 150
A/c compressor locked up, I bought the shorter belt recommended at auto parts store. I need the proper routing diagram for the belt.
If you look at the label on the fan shroud both the A/C equipped and non AC equipped applications are printed on the same label. Just look closely and I believe one is shown with a dotted line. The change of path occurs around the belt tensioner.
Not entirely sure that a shorter belt was needed, the routing of the belt on the passengers side of the motor takes up some of the slack.

Lower left is the tensioner and above should the idler. Sometimes there is a diagram on the fan shroud or near the radiator. Without a picture I hope this makes sense.
Starting with the ac going over the top of its pulley and down to the power steering, to and under the crank shaft, going in and up and around left over the water pump to the tensioner (going under) and to the alternator over the top and then under the idler.

go to www.gates.com on the lower right hand side under popular topics, click on timing belts, then on the left hand side click Parts Locator and Interchange, enter your cars info and the first page that comes up will show you a camera icon for a pic of how your belt is routed. The tensioner pulley is the one mounted on a silver arm, usually at the top. Hope this helps let me know.
