Since I've done this myself I'll throw my 2 cents in.
You do not need a delete for your AC since all it really needs is a shorter belt. If the one you got from Rockauto is to long then if you want to keep it a delete is an option. But IMO the most cost effective way is to go to your local parts store and test a few belt lengths to get it how you want it. I'm not sure what length of belt I put on my truck when I got rid of my AC compressor, somewhere around 90" I believe. Since as far as I know there is no way to adjust your pully/tensioner locations.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow if you want if you want to see mine. Can't right now as its dark outside.
Wasn't AC an option? So isn't there at least a belt specifically for lack of AC? I mean..if not there is a diagram under my hood that shows the belt for and not for AC so it seems like it wouldn't be hard to get a belt specifically for that.
Crazy, I hope you are right, we just came back from the wrecking yard but we couldn't bring the bracket home because he wanted to close early, we are going back in the morning. He has a '94 full size Dodge 5.2 with compressor removed and the same size belt we have works slick. On the opposite side he has a (factory) non a/c van, 5.2 and the bracket really looks like the one we might need. Going to take it off in the morning and I hope it will work, I really like it because where the bypass hose is now, it is hidden under the bracket but with this one the hose is wide open. By the way . . . . this guy thinks there is no other truck but a full size truck and he is very opinionated about that. He does not even have one Dak in the yard and won't even talk to you about them. lol.
On the other hand . . . at least he is a Dodge boy.
Yeah, Melody, who would have thought all this aggravation over a belt!
