Ac Deleted, Belt Solution?

So, removed the ac. Having an issue with the belt hitting the underside of the idler on the procharger bracket. Took all the travel out of that idler to try to gain clearance but to no avail. Is there an alternative solution

lol I never run ac, free up some power and shave some weight? Sure! Only issue is the procharger head unit is causing the belt to rub.

I don't remember anymore. I have an old belt I cut and use it for measuring. Since you won't be using your old one get a measurement with the tensioner fully extended and also fully under tension and get a size closest to the under tension measurement.

The belt size isn't the issue. The belt is hitting the idler on the procharger bracket. I just did some measuring and will be making a bracket with a pulley on it.

The AC compressor only robs power when the AC is on so this is really a weight savings mod. I would look into gutting the compressor or cutting it down and then reinstall it to route your belt in the factory configuration. Or you could just reinstall the compressor as is with nothing hooked up!

Has anybody actually cut one of these up? I was probably just going to make a bracket out of angle iron and bolt a pulley to it

I'm not too sure. I certainly have not. I just prefer using OEM wherever possible over home-made.

 

In my personal opinion the hassle is not worth the 5lbs saved from removing the compressor unless you're hunting for every hundredth of a second.

I got it figured out I think. I took the condenser apart at the front gasket and will utilize the factory pulley minus the clutch and rest of the housing. Wasn't hard to take it apart.

Thanks everyone for the help!

Just hope I'll have it done for cf8.
