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.
Can you take the AC off too?
Is there a kit to remove the a/c, p/s ,and using smog idler pulley? It don't seem that you can?
dont know what happened to the other pic
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?
Belt goes under tensioner. I have non ac car and i deleted smog like pic in lower right. I have underdrive pulleys and needed 72 inch belt.
how does the belt go under the tensioner without hitting the water pump?
Very close.....I had this setup on an 83 vert. Still though...it don't hit.
mine is the bottom left with under drives on the crank and water .76in was mine and there is like 3/16ths between the tensioner and the water pump. i might try the bottom right. this week some time
Here are my schematics for the SN95 5.0 (belt lengths assume stock pulleys):
so i looked a at my and it seems my belt stretched and is dangerous close to touchin it self any one know how to make the tensionor go up instead of down?
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.
