By the looks of your routing diagram, it looks like you could do it with a smaller belt, but I recommend you make sure there isn't something in the way of the new path the belt would take from the crank pulley to the water pump and power steering. The other thing to worry is if the contact arc with the water pump will be sufficient to avoid slippage. I don't know if anyone but the designer could tell you that for sure, but there are probably lots of old hats that have tried it and could tell you from experience what the odds are. I'm not one of them, sorry. Maybe anther Fixya guy will have some experience with this and chime in. Another thing you can do is go the the parts store and tell them you need the belt that goes with your car when it doesn't come with A/C. If there is such a configuration, ask to see the routing diagram and note whether or not they use a different routing and/or if they use an extra idler pulley in place of the compressor. If the latter is true, you will not be able to leave the compressor in place, but you may be able to pull it aside and wire it up using coat hangers, etc. I HAVE seen this done before. Let us know if you have more questions.
