lloydrmc has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Default No Worries

I've seem some people apologize for reviving this thread. I see no need to apologize. I think this is good information to have.

I have a 2001 SES. I tried a 82 1/8" belt, and it fit around everything quite easily - without loosening the tensioner at all!

Next up was a 81 1/8" belt. It works, and it's kind of floppy. It didn't require very much tension on the tensioner to put it on, if you know what I mean.

I ordered the last, distributor closeout 80.5" Goodyear Gatorback from Rock Auto. I'm hoping that will do the trick.

I used the 820K6 from AZ today on the 98 Vulcan. The way I routed it left it rubbing on the compressor slightly so I backed out all the compressor bolts and removed the easiest bolt and installed enough washers to space the compressor out a couple milimeters. I know I could have taken it all the way out, but I wanted to keep the lines connected. I thought I had way too much belt until I looped it straight over the top of the crank pulley to the tensioner.

This thread was a great help. My AC clutch decided to start making a terrible noise on our way back from a family vacation. I don't have the money to buy a new compressor so I was hoping to find the number for a short belt to bypass the the AC and with one quick search..... Here it is. The 82.5" belt worked great!!

Thank you all! I was successfully by passed the AC using 820K6 from autozone. 82 inch belt is the exact fit on my 2001 vulcan.

Thanks Guys...this is great info an an awesome site. I was able to use 820k6 from az to bypass the a/c on my sisters 03 vulcan so she could get my 85 year old mother home to FL. from OH. It cleared the compressor by only an 1/8 inch, but worked flawlessly. My wife and I also own (2) 07 bulls so I will be visiting this site regularly. Thanks again!

Wow! I had to hurry up and register to shoot out a HUGE thanks!!! for this thread..

Went and bought the 820K6 at AZ and did what John Myers said, but used a tie rod lock nut instead of washers. You guys are life savers!!!

No problem with A/C pulley clearance, there seems to be a few millimeters clearance between the new belt placement and the A/C pulley.

My 01 SES has a frozen AC pulley. Considering I am buying a minivan this weekend, I didn't want to put much money in it-so I took your suggestion & it worked perfectly. Thanks! It is very close to the AC pulley, to the point of leaving just a trace of wear on the outside of the belt-but I couldn't care less. It'll work for now. Appreciate the info!

Default old thread, but could use help...

Am I correct in understanding that it is not possible to bypass any year DOHC with a different belt? I have a '99 Sable DOHC with a seized compressor and would really like to avoid towing again.
