Default 3800 Series I SC, trying to run single belt

Has anyone run a single belt on a 3800 Series I Supercharged engine?

Not real up on the series 1, but I believe it'* like the series 2 as to belt routing. And it needs two belts because the pulleys don't line up.

I also believe the water pump is on the same belt as the supercharger as well.

If its for what I think it is, you should probably upgrade the Series 1 in that Fiero to a Series 2. Then at least you could get away with running only one belt, but no supercharger.
