66 289 Smog pump removal and AC pulley question

I've taken the smog pump and extra hoses off my 66 289 California car. It has factory AC and power steering, but now there's no pulley for the AC, it won't go straight from the crank pulley to the AC unit (it runs into the water pump pulley that has only two grooves). Any suggestions? I want to keep AC and get it working. FYI, I took smog pump off for cosmetic reasons, but safely packed it away just in case. Is there such thing as a 3 belt water pump pulley that would take a belt from the crank (front pulley now not in use after smog pump removal) to the water pump to the AC unit? I saw this one on eBay, but it says for smog pump only, http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-5...0001&campid=5335821607&icep_item=263282149239 I think I found the answer to my own question, it looks like I need the idler pulley assembly. If anybody knows for sure, I'd appreciate the help.
