Looking for an A/C bypass pulley

Last time I was on Summit's website, I believe they gave me three options, but not sure which works. Dorman 34184, 34164, and 34151say they are for my 3.8l, but 34164 has a different bracket, so I can rule out that one

If you want to remove the compressor for good you can route it like I did, it'll take a new serpentine belt tensioner from an n/a V6 Mustang and a different length belt.



Change ac delete

N/A V6 Mustang/Tbird tensioner
NAPA 25-08560 8 rib belt

94 SC AUTO - $$$$ Pit

Well to be honest, whichever way is the most effective, that's the way I'd like to go. Considering earlier today I damaged the compresser, I would rather not buy another one.

A new compressor kit is only 140 bucks for the whole kit, seals, compressor, orifice tube, and accumulator/drier. The compressor stand-alone with no other AC components is only a 100 bucks. If your reason for deleting the AC is money then just know it's pretty cheap.

If you plan on repairing and keeping the a/c then an a/c delete pulley is the way to go. If you don't then go the route that I did then can remove the compressor and condenser that's in front of the radiator so that more air is able to go directly through your radiator thus better cooling.

I did the full delete from mine. It's the best way to go since it completely removes all the a/c hardware from the car. Use the n/a tensioner, an 8-rib pulley, and the shorter belt. You'll also need 2 washers to sit behind the pulley on the tensioner to get proper alignment on the belt. Really cleans the engine bay up. Part numbers can be found over on SCCOA. If you want, I have the belt you need I'd sell you for $15 shipped.

Just random washers or specific sizes? And what overdrive pulleys are needed?

I used two 5/8" stainless steel washers (got them at Lowes). The only pulley you need is Dayco 89053 8 rib pulley on rockauto.com. Put it all together, and put it on the car. I also drilled out one of the holes on the engine bracket to allow the bigger mounting pin from the tensioner.
