Due to my choice of exhaust in my 3800sc swap, I have to run an a/c bypass pulley. Now that it is in, I can't get the belt back on. I took the pulley off and measured, it is about a quarter inch larger diameter than the a/c compressor. It's supposed to use the same accessory belt, but doesn't. Google is failing me in a search for a belt number, so I am asking here, if anyone has run into this and knows a good belt number or an application? I found this " '88 2.8L Corsica without A/C" But I don't know if that is really what I need? (supposedly you can just buy a shorter belt and skip the bypass pulley altogether, but then you have to change some pulleys or something else.
The difference in circumference is roughly an inch. (0.981") Seems to me that isn't a lot, but it's enough to keep the belt from going on. If the belt length on AutoZone is right, (2379.98 mm) then adding 25.4 mm brings me to 2405.38 mm, and this is the closest I have found so far. http://www.beltpalace.com/6pk2410.html
If I put 6pk2410 in the auto zone search, I get a hit. http://www.autozone.com/coo...yco-belt/150407_0_0/
