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?

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.

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.
