RE: A/C bypass serpentine belt size???
I had do the same thing last summer while on vacation. We were 200 miles from home when my ACclutch bearingwent bad. Of course it was nearly 100 degrees thatweek so it made for some excellent "family time" pulling the camper from place to place.
I went to the local NAPA and they looked up the part# for a 5.9 without AC and I tried it but it was too tight too. So through trial and error the parts guy let me try some slightly longer belts till I found the one that fits.
The part # on the belt I used is NAPA 25-070901
I found an AC clutch in a local boneyard for $75 and replaced it a couple days after we returned from our trip, but I keep that extra belt in my toolbox in case of emergencies.
