by-oass pulley

I removed all of the a/c from my 1984 CJ-7 except for the compressor.. can't take it off because of the serpentine belt routing? anyone know of where I can buy one of those by-pass pulley assembly's so I can yank the compressor off the motor?


I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his JEEP!...

Can't you just get a belt that is for you engine without AC? Just tell the parts guy you need a belt for you vehicle/engine w/o AC.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

that would be too easy.. americans don't design things to be easy.. the belt goes over the water inlet, and a few things, and won't clear anything if you remove the a/c compressor.. unless I can figure out a way to move the alternator up to where the a/c compressor is.. that may be the only option since NO ONE makes a by-pass for the JEEP.. or, fabricate one I guess..

Sometimes thing do get designed that easy. Many engines are set up so you can just use a different belt. Sorry that your engine isn't one of them.
