I guess it always comes down to $$$. I can stand a lot of issues with my cars, busted suspensions, busted seats, bald tires, but A/C I must have.Im guessing $$$ and not needing it now (winter).
I know Dorman makes one for the Vulcan...didn't know the 'tec had one. Dang, news to me!Someone does make a by-pass pulley for the tec, but iirc, the compressor must be removed.
Yeap that time of year again, when the little man in the red suit needs the money, worse than I need an A/C.Im guessing $$$ and not needing it now (winter).
I can confirm that. I had seen A/C bypass pulley for 2000 TEC at both AutoZone and Napa websites at different times.Nick, i read that somewhere, cant remember if was on here or elsewhere, or the name of the mfgr. I just dismissed it when i saw the compressor had to come out anyway. Only positive would be if you were terribly low on funds.
For a 2001 TEC, yes, the above statement is true.Also iirc, you just cant gain clearance with a shorter belt on a tec.
No idea. I only had experience with 2000 and 2001's.Hhu168, how about on gen3 tecs?
