Default Belt Bypass (AC)

I'm back, and hi everyone.

Anyhow, time for another Vulcan engine problem.

I know there are post about this on the forum, but i could not find an exact answer. So, what is the exact size belt needed to bypass the AC compressor on a 2003 Vulcan (Vin 2) engine. I don't want to fight getting the compressor out. Problem is that the bearing on the pulley has gone bad and i can see it move from side to side when the car is running.

Dunno. Might try it. If not, return it. My book is showing an 82.2" and/or 82.5" (K060825).

Thank you and done.

Nice belt indeed, might have gotten a cheaper one but what the heck.

On the 4th generation vin 2 I think 82.2 is a little long as it was not much of an effort getting it on. Perhaps for the next person doing this they should try an 82.0 or 81.8.

Feels a bit more powerful now that its not dragging the pulley. can't wait to see the gas increase XD

There is like a millimeter of room between the belt and the ac pulley. i swear i hear is squeak from drag under load but just ever so slightly. maybe i will back the AC off a bit and put some washers on it
