Default AC delete pulley.

Most of the stores I have gone to get a AC delete pulley for my NA, '95 88 has resulted in blank stares and "they don't make those anymore". I found a Dorman #34202 but it specifies it for a SC motor. I do find different compressor numbers for SC and NA rigs. My question is, do the compressors mount differently? Can I use the SC specified delete pulley on my NA rig? Or, does someone out there have a NA specific delete pully number and source.

And before I get flamed, I did several searches here and did not come up with anything.

I know its slightly offtopic...but why would you want to do that? If the clutch isn't engaged, the compressor basically becomes a big *** freewheeling pulley.

I too looked for one in the local stores, but came up with nothing. I ended up makin my own with a 5" pulley, some spacers, and some 1/4" steel plate for a bracket. I used a gaterback 9060980 belt that fit perfectly. No belt squeals or unven belt wear, so im satisfied with it. The motor feels more responsive with the compressor gone.

FYI. I removed mine because the compressor was hitting my custom front header. I will probably put it back on next summer when I build a full header system though. I saved all the parts.

I did find it on ebay though.

The compressor is locked up and the clutch bearings are making a hell of racket. Wanna remove the compressor/clutch assembly before the clutch locks down and fries my belt off, making the car stop and the wife very mad. Since its cooled off here alot, I can blow off the $500 repair for a while.

Did you know that the AC compressor removes moisture from the car in winter? Your front defog function will be severely limited. Just an FYI.

I waited too long and that happened to me. It took out my belt and harmonic balancer as well. I got a JY compressor. I have yet to recharge it yet. I'll probably be doing that in the spring. Good luck finding that part. I had a tough time so I just got JY part.

It does make a difference, but not too big, in my experience. My '89 was an outside car in Michigan, and it did just fine without working AC for defrosting, etc.

Just my $.02.
