There's no need for an idler pulley. Just get a shorter belt and run it directly from the crank to the PS pump. I have bypassed the AC compressor like that with it still installed. The AC delete belt is: size 760k6, or Gates - K060760.

Woody is right about getting rid of the AC. I need to quit thinking of this car as having other purposes and just commit to making it into a car for the $2,000 Challenge and whatever else looks fun after that - I have plenty of cars to drive on the street with AC.
