Default a/c compressor delete

alright, here we go. apparently bonnevilles are known for bad a/c compressors, and now mine is shot. i dont mind riding with my windows down, and actually prefer it; but with the belt riding on the ac clutch, which is still spinning, and the compressor which is locked up, its making nasty noises. now my question is, has anyone here found a serpentine belt that bypasses the compressor on a series 1 ssei? im only doing this until i can get the money to replace the compressor, dryer and orifice tube, but i need to do it. if anyone has a brand and part number for the belt, i would greatly appreciate it. thanks a ton guys (and girls).

Better buy the AC comp now, with the curvature of the 3800 belt, bypassing the AC
won't work well. IF it was a 60 degree V6, you could sneak it by, but not on the 3800 SC.
If it was a regular 3800, you might get by with a 85-87 3 liter belt w/o AC.

I've done it on a Series I NA, but not SC.
