Default Re: Locked up AC comp... Run shorter belt?

my apologies to the forum i lied.

a shorter belt will work fine it appears, with the caveat that at least the ac compressor pulley needs to be removed as the back of the belt will hit the pulley when taught.

i have an old belt i will rig one up and post the length.

the difference between "minimum" belt size and maximum is aboot this much. (the two small notches) one and one eighth and that is pushing it because at the one eighth mark the tensioner has hit its stop.

the dealership i bought my sprinter from was a la france ambulance repairer. where did the second alternator go on this engine? the same place the a/c unit goes but that means that ambulance t1n can a/c is run off the transmission pto?

excuse my french and my understanding i have never seen a sprinter t1n can ambulance setup although i do know the shop was set up correctly, and their service manager was a very nice female that back in the one year after a 2004 is out of warranty somehow got my clock spring replaced for free.

Some additional info on removing/bypassing the A/C compressor and using a shorter belt. Nothing definitive, but may give a starting point.

I recall a thread where someone installed a belt that left the A/C pulley out of the routing on a 2.7L 5 cylinder. I don't recall if the A/C compressor needed to be removed for that to work or not. I asked for the belt number. I don't believe that I ever got a reply.

A search did reveal that Skippytdi measured the short belt to be approx. 7 ft. 1.9" long = 85.9" L = 2181.86 mm converted.

The A/C pulley does interfere with the shortened routing.

BUT...
A inches to mm direct conversion doesn't seem to work.

This listing doesn't compute to a 6PK2182 or even a 6PK2180 belt being near 85.9" long.

D&D PowerDrive 6PK2176 Metric Standard Replacement Belt, 86.55" Length, 0.86" Width
https://www.amazon.com/PowerDrive-6P.../dp/B01AGQ9YJA

Unless a definite length can be established, trial and error may be needed.

Maybe start with this?
This Ford Taurus Serpentine Belt [6PK2165] has an outside effective circumference length of 85.2"
https://mechanidrive.com/852k6-6pk21...belt-abz27142/

or

6PK2170

Anyway.
The info and pics from Skippytdi starts here.

Default BTW… .

Thanks for the pic.
Right is the center of my pic, a bolt, right?
What, is that bolt just doing nothing?
Is that a oil pressure port? Can you determine the size & pitch?
Also Mr Op, is there a port on the drivers side of the om647, just under the AC compr?
If so could determine the size & thread pitch?

Thank you so much.
