Question about AC Cars & Trucks
We've tried replacing the pulley. also we've called around & they said there was no other belt listings for it... ssooooo... ? I have this auto mechanic friend of mine that suggests us to just go measure the belt & try to find one that fits... but what do you suggest?
Compressors usually don't lock up, compressor clutches do The clutch is held on by one bolt in the center.The new clutch should come with larger bolt that screws into the threads in the clutch face to pull the old one. If not find a bolt that will screw into the face of the new clutch and use it to pull the old one. [ When the compressor it's self locks up the clutch will spin freely when the A/C is off ]

There may be a compressor eliminator pulley kit for your car. Or if your compressor is locked up, replace the compressor with a used or rebuilt just for the sake of bearings. Or if a belt will clear with the compressor gone (or installed) , measure from your mark on one apex to the next pulley/ idler with the tensioner compressed more than halfway and add that distance to the remaining belt length between the marks and ransack the earth for one. Start with Graingers. Or try your parts supplier who took an oath not to try to match anything up. Here you'll have to ask to use the bathroom, and while in the back start measuring belts.
