Got my A/C Delete Pulley Today

it was 40 dollars shipped from Dan Newman. Frees up a LOT of room on the passenger side. And it's shiney aluminum I'll probably paint it so it doesnt lose it's shine.

As you can see in the alst two pics, it is ROOMY there now! My plug wires and that blue wiring harness used to lay over the AC comrpessor. Now they dangle with freedom. I need to go to the hardware store and buy short bolts, for now I have that long one stuck in there from the comrpessor.

I just got mine yesterday.........removed all of the AC stuff tonight......she's getting close.

Finals are next week so that screws my hopes of getting her on the street this weekend. Come Next wednesday I pray I can at least move her under her own power.

It wouldnt add horsepower, but free it up. Infact, nothing really adds power unless its nitrous or some form of forced induction... everything you do NA frees up potential power that was already there.

But basically, yeah, it would free up a few horses. Also saves a lil weight on the front end.

Well, the AC decreases horsepower when it's on because it takes a lot of power to turn the AC compressor, but really you can just turn it off and it won't rob any power. But all the AC stuff weighs a ton, especially the compressor. So this reduces weight from the car and evens out the weight distribution a bit, while freeing up a lot of room in the engine bay.

well, porting stock parts is something that adds power from the stock base rating. I consider that a power gain. But something gained from reduction of parasidic drag, such as an electric fan, or underdrive pullies, I consider that gaining power from whats already there, since the motor IS making that power, but is putting it into something else, like the clutch fan, or alternator, etc.

Changing internal parts is really the only thing I would discount, save for the camshaft.

I consider the weight to be negligble, 30#'s maybe. You probably wouldnt notice it missing but every little bit helps.

The AC system had not been converted to use R134, was empty, and in MN its not worth the money to change it over...no sense having it under there if its not being used......so it was pulled.

I lived one summer in Kansas City without AC.

It was hot, humid, and it sucked. Ill be converting mine over in the future, but its nice to know that there is a delete if you want one.

hey, just tell them to wear white t-shirts

The only downside to my a/c delete pulley so far is the sound it makes. I dont know if its the one I got and its an isolated incident or what, but it makes the sound of a bad power steering pump. I'm going to lube up the bearing and see if that wont help. Hell I might just end up putting a smaller billet pulley on it to free up even more room.

Keeping my A/C sorry but 100% humidity for months on end kind of calls for a limited use of AC in stop and go traffic.

If all else fails get a bigger hammer!

or take off the blouse completely....

i didn't think the pulley would make noise, let us know if greasing the bearing fixes the problem...

Yes folks, a little oil on that bearing will stop that right away. Mine was fine when I first put it on, then last year when I did my engine swap, the pulley and bracket sat "idle" {no pun intended} for 4 months.........when I started the car up that damn thing was squeelin like a pig........got r all fixed now.

thats because the supercoupe uses an 8 rib belt setup for more grip, as opposed to the 6 rib setup on the 3.8 NA's. V6Sprout has one though so he obviously found a pulley for it. I'll ask him for you.

here's a pic of one adapted to fit on a supercoupe motor. As you can see it has spacers added to fit it properly, and that pulley on there is CNC machined billet aluminum. Someone makes them for the supercoupes so maybe if you can find out who that'll lead to your solution. I believe it's the same company as who makes the billet jackshaft pulley
