taking out the AC compressor?

i know theres millions, millions millionss of threads, about this,
but this isnt for weight reduction

my downpipe is the only thing left to put on, and we forgot to take out the ac compressor.. aha
I did take out the wiring/tubes/pipes of the AC and the turbo/manifold/wastegate was put on right in, with plenty space,
I didnt know we had to take out the AC and i guess i 4got the compressor. aha

so, i know there is 4 bolts there holding, and just wiggling out,
but the belts i have a problem with. its a 4 ribbed belt, and i dont know how to measure it..
the threads ive read on here, saying you can buy an under pulley? or something. But my friend says we can just put a belt. from the alternator (correct me if im wrong) to the pully to the block,

this is the last thing holding us back from getting my car on the road.
so if anyone can link me to a stickie, because I can not find one, Or have any advice, please, pleasee post :D

Re: taking out the AC compressor?

On my H23 when I removed AC i used a 38" belt, I would assume it is the same for the H22, seeing as how they are identical and such :) And the belt will just go from the crank to the alternator, whereas before it went from the crank to the alternator, to the AC pump. Just pop off the PS belt (I don't think you would have PS anymore, but just figured I would toss this in just incase you do) before you can remove any belts. And undo the 4 bolts on the AC compressor and lift up on it to get the belt off and then toss that heavy ass bitch in the driveway, and then to get the new belt on, just loosen the tension bolt on the right side of alternator and slide the alternator down, and then put the belt on starting by putting it on the crank pulley first and then sliding it over the alternator pulley, and then slide the alternator back up and hold it with tension on the belt, and then tighten the tensioner bolt down and viola! As a general rule, tighten the tensioner bolt until the belt will turn 90 degrees, but no more.

Hope that helps big man.

there's no need for pics, just use your common sense. right now the belt is ran from the crank pulley, to alternator, to AC compressor. since your deleting AC, that means it's just going from the crank, to the alt.

right idea, wrong sequence.
if you start unbolting the AC compressor w/o untensioning the belt, it'll prolly start bending the bolts and stripping the threads.
first, untension the belt with the tensioner under the alternator, push/rotate alt down to get the belt off, then take the compressor off.
install new belt.

i'm using 38", vtak is using 36". you can be a big boy and decide for yourself what you can/wanna run.
