A/C bypass pulley

Postby BerettaZ26 » Sat Aug 23, 2014 12:49 am

hey all, sry I haven't been on for a while but I'm in the middle of moving back to my home town so I won't be on for long bit this is the first time I've been able to sit down and get on the computer. NEWAY I made a mod to my little Z, my A/C compressor bearings went out and it was making a horrible grinding noise so I went down to autozone and got me a A/C bypass pulley kit. Came with a bracket, a pulley the same size as the compressor pulley and all the hardware. I will say this the compressor was a total bitch to get out and it fought me the whole time. but I finally got it out and got the new bracket and pulley in, and I don't know if it gave me any more power but I think it would since the weight of the compressor isn't there ne more and it's got less rotational mass since that pulley just free wheels. but I am glad that the horrible sound of bearings grinding is gone out of it, so if ur compressor goes out or if u have a hole in one of ur lines just spend the 40 dollars on this A/C delete kit like I did and u can b on ur marry way!
Like I always say keep em on the road and not in the junkyard!

factory AC pulley free wheels when the AC is not engaged and has little to no weight. You only gained a quite belt system and maybe a few lbs off the front end... Not much really. My car still has AC and I will never remove it.
