hey there. i need an a/c compressor for my 78 coupe deville. i really don't care if it will actually make the a/c system work all that much i am really just after one that the pulley will spin. i have a 425, which most of these cars do but just on thye off chanse that someone had a compressor for a deisel and wanted to sell it, sorry i can't use it mine locked up and threw a belt on a 300mile road trip. by they way driving 100 miles w/o power steering really sucks. lol

IIRC you can simply run another fan belt around the crank and the PS but the waterpump pulley has to be removed to get the smaller belt in place.

do you have about a guesstimate on what size belt would be needed to go straight from the crank to the p/s?

Sorry but I'm not THAT good. Some people use string as a measurement device.
