    I have a serpanine setup that I am putting on the 350 that is in my Jeep. I want to take the AC compressor off. Can I just get a shorter belt or is there an idler pully that needs to go where the AC was?+

    Yep, you need an idler pulley that goes in place of where the a/c compressor was. I picked one up at a a/c repair shop for around 25.00. I still used my belt that was on there already with the a/c, haven't had any prolbems. But it does call for a shorter belt with the idler pulley instead of the a/c compressor.

    A buddy of mine did that same swap and kept the a/c compressor to use for filling up his tires. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif He has a small filter on the intake side and he dribbles a few drops of oil into the intake from time to time to keep the compressor lubricated. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif It fills up tires WAY faster than one of those $20 plug-in-the-cigarette-lighter pumps. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
