They sell a bypass pulley but this is difficult to change. (you have to pull the compressor to get to the three bolts) The original belt is a 1073k6. The 1073 mean 107.3 inches. The belt needed to just bypass the compressor is 34 inches shorter, but they do not sell a 733k6 belt. They do sell a 735k6. This will work fine if your tensioner is in good shape. But the bypass pulleys are cheap and keep the right set up. Good luck. On my 1992 Ciera, they even had a diagram as to how the belt is installed "with AC" and "no AC" and the picture eliminated the compressor for the no AC option. If the manufacture shows an option without a compressor, I wonder why all the part stores don't have that info.
