Default Accessory belt routing!?!

So here is the problem...
I am a fiero guy, and im swapping the vin c engine into my fiero...
Fieros have no powersteering or in the case of my car, no AC...the engine i got came without an altenator, powersteering or ac pump...so i am clueless to the routing of the drive belt...
I am planning on only using the pulleys from the waterpump, crank, and altenator...
So if anyone could tell me the routing, or have a picture of it, so i know how to go about using only the altenator, and water pump, That would be GREAT!!!
I dont want to go running the waterpump backwards
Thanks,
Cody

Let me try and find my FSM and see what it says. I didn't think there was an option for routing the belts without having AC on our cars.

I will let you know.



EDIT: Looks like your SOL, without getting a pulley to replace the AC compressor. The FSM only shows routing with AC, I guess AC was standard equipment on our bonnies.

Well heres the thing...not using the Idler pully (I modified a bracket to make the altenator the tensioner) and im not using the powersteering, or AC...Ive got a belt that fits it corectly with the three pulleys... ( Crank, Waterpump and altenator) but i need to make sure that everything is spinning the right way...

Does the water pump spin counter clockwise???

I will go take a run outside and start up one of the Bonnevilles to check the rotation direction too.
