    new to Cadillac and have my first question regarding bypassing the ac.

    I traded a friend a dirtbike for this car and he said the p/s stopped working. I looked under the hood and looks like the ac clutch locked up and threw the belts. Does anybody know the belt part number to bypass the ac so I can drive the car home? It's a 76 coupe Deville.

    Don't know the number of the belt, but get a string or light rope you can wrap around the pulleys you want to engage. Measure the length, take that info to the parts store and buy 4 or 5 belts about that length. Return the ones you don't use. The belts are prolly 1/2" wide.

    I think that's what I have to do, it just sux since the car is not close to any parts places and an hour from my place. I'm hoping there won't be any clearance issues when changing the routing.

    AC was standard on Caddys by 76, so I don't think there even is a part number for a non-AC belt for these cars. Clearance shouldn't be an issue. You have tons of space between and around stuff under the hood. BTW, the car can be driven with no PS. Just takes more effort to turn the wheel at low speed.
