    Thanks for posting that! I've been looking for the belt routing schematic for some time now. I recently bought a 87' mustang and the previous owner deleted the smog pump and the A/C. If you saw how the belt is being ran now you would laugh. The belt runs on both sides of the tensioner. I don't know how he did it, but when I looked at it I knew something didn't look right. Now I have something to go off of. Thanks again.

    Wont the stock vs. the no smog routing cause reverse water pump rotation? Never mind I got it now, just looks funny in the pic.

    What size belt would I need if I went with that bottom right pic? The no smog and no ac. Looks like the belt is on the opposite side of the tensioner? How's that work?

    Just put a ribbed Idler pulley on mine. Will test and take pix tomorrow. Looks like the alignment is a little off from the ribbed idler, not sure of how to fix that short of machining something.
