    air conditioning delete ?

    Are there two different alternator mounts for these cars? (Engine is out of 95 3000GT, going into something else completely different)

    I am getting rid of the air conditioning system completely. Has anyone else done this? Any tips, hints, or suggestions? The alternator belt I purchased seems to be an inch or two too long for no a/c.

    The only different alternator mounts is one for the SOHC and one for the DOHC. The SOHC has its AC on its own belt so AC delete on it is easy. There are several methods to deleting the AC on a DOHC 3s

    Thank you.
    This is a DOHC TT from a VR4. Where would I go to look at the various options?

    I thought there was a write up on pansy patrol but I was unable to locate it. A few vendors do offer ac delete "kits"

    Remove AC. Only install upper belt idler pulley. Done. Now buy a shorter belt. To install belt, you need to only put the lower bolt in the alt. Now your alt will pivot on the first bolt. In the down posission you will be able to install the belt. As you begin pulling the alt into place, the belt will get tight. Now install other 3 bolt and you are done. This also elliminates the tentioner pulley down below. You have everything but the belt to complete this. I can not tell you what size belt to use as pulleys differ in size. I run under drive so my numbers do you know good.

    this, I deleted Coop's (DCIV) AC on his car. You can pretty much just remove the AC and put a smaller belt on it. I can't remember the exact way it went on but I remember it being very easy. The hardest part was going back and forth to the part store to find the right belt. If you want PM coop on 3si and ask what the belt number is if he can still read it.

    I think the belt number for underdrive pulley is 060370 and I should confirm this (on my car) in a few days.

    I removed ALL the Idlers and AC mountings, I modified the Alt bracket slightly to clear the belt (it`s obvious what has to be removed when looking at it) and fitted a 6PK1000 belt on stock alt and crank pulleys.

    Been fine for 5000+ miles and the tension is still perfect!, saved a lot of weight..
