Bill-

The pulley is special order, and I already figured out how to re-route the pulley to bypass the AC. I went to autozone and bought a belt for a 93 Olds. 88 without A/C. The Gatorback brand was $21.99 and fit like a glove.

Hopefully I'll be able to get the AC system taken care of in the near future...it'* a pain to drive without it; but I can bear it.

Anyway, thanks again for your help...this was a good learning experience.

Ive been there and done this on my 90 SSE. The shorter bypass belt ate water pumps every two yrs.
A/C compressor is not worth messing with. If you ever want to use your A/C in the future go to the junk yard and get a used compressor. Mine was only $25 and ended all my problems.

For both of us! Buyin' a belt for the same engine w/o AC was a heckuva lot easier than measuring around the pulleys! Thank you.

Oh, before you throw it away, could you please post the belt part no. for the next guy?

cool...thanks for the advice.

Is the water pump a pain to change? From my knowledge the stocker is still in there.

Also, I installed an electric water pump in my camaro. But that one was originally cam driven, not belt driven. Are these available for bonnevilles?
