You'll probably need to buy three belts and take two back before you get it right. Take a piece of string, hold the end exactly where the belt leaves the pulley before the compressor, follow the same path the belt does around the compressor and on to the next pulley where you want to mark the string where it meets the pulley. Take the measurement of the string, subtract it from the overall length of the old belt (with AC) and that will give a pretty good idea of how long a belt you need to bypass the compressor. Buy that one and another two (slightly smaller and slightly bigger because it's important to have roughly the proper amount of tension on the belt.

Well, how is the air conditioner "unattached", exactly? If it's on a serpentine belt and you want to bypass the compressor, you have to make sure you have the right length of belt and that it's properly routed. If you simply pulled out the AC relays, the truck should still operate normally.

Is there a way to bypass the air conditioner compressor on a Ford Taurus?

I am unsure what you mean by bypass. The Air Conditioning system will not work with out the compressor. The compressor can be disabled by unplugging the electric clutch. Most of these little Fords could have a different length belt fitted so the compressor pulley didn't turn at all.
