2.5L Belt routing with York compressor +PS and no A/C

Hello,

I'm just finishing my on board air system and I have a question about belt routing. I routed it a little different then what the kilby website shows. Is this a problem or should it be mounted the way the kilby diagram shows? I dont want to be out on a trail in the middle of know where and snap a belt. I'll be having my old serp belt with me until i know this is proven. But any feedback on the belt routing is appreciated.

The way I have it right now seems to work. I'm able to run the Jeep the way it is and it moves everything and the tension is tight.

Here is how I mounted it.

I was actually wondering the same thing.

Mine's all mounted just was wondering that one thing.

On my first 97 TJ, I routed it like Kilby did. I guess I am unsure why you'd attempt to change a proven routing method.

I see no reason why your way would not work, but I'd feel better running mine like Kilby does...cause its the norm.

ok thanks, i may try to get a longer belt and do it the kilby way. Just seems the belt will be so close to touching when it makes the bend around idler pully by the york and the fan.

well i ended up getting a longer belt and everything looks good. I went with a 103 5/8" belt from NAPA and that seems to be the magic number. OBA is now completed!
