Smog delete

Ok so I've read that you have to have either a smog delete kit our a A/C delete cause you can't just pull them off and get shorter belt. Especially if you have underdrive pulleys. Why is that? Will I be ok if I ditch my smog pump and go with just a smaller belt and keep my A/C and underdrive pulleys.

It should be ok. When I bought my mustang it didn't have the smog pump and I removed the ac with a delete kit and just got a smaller belt. I don't see the pulleys being to much of a problem just double check

what u can do is take your stock belt and cut it to the right length.then duct tape it together.take that to the auto store and match it to the length u need.a string will work also but i prefer using the belt cause it sits in the pulley properly when measuring.

not everyone does have issues with the charging.but i have read this problem around here lots of times and also have experienced it myself.the cure if u do have charging issues is to use a higher amp alternator.

Well I'm keeping my AC. Ac is like American express don't leave home without it. I already have underdrive pulleys. I'm just goin to pull my smog pump off and get the shorter belt. The idea of cutting belt and shorting and using duct tape is good idea might do that

Lol I already have charging issues due to a 20 yr old alternator but I have a chrome one wire 160 amp alternator to replace it. So that should cure my prob

I agree every car is different I guess you can also say lucky that I didn't experience charging issues . As far as getting the right size belt you can also go to you're local autozone and see if they let you try on the belts that's how I did with mine

Bad thing is you'll fail sniffer test when getting inspected. And good things are cleaner engine bay less drag on pulleys frees up a couple of hspr not much.
