Hey nice write up, I'm trying to do the same thing, just have a few q's. I'm pretty much a noob to mk1s so hopefully this isn't completely amateur on my part. It looks like the fan belt that used to drive the compressor is the one you're using to drive the alternator and you just ditched the one that was on the car to drive the alternator. Am I seeing that correct?
My second question is how do I decrease the tension on the A/C belt to take it off? It looks like there used to be one of those geared bolts like is used to tension the alternator belt down on the bracket for the compressor, but that bolt is no longer there? How do I remove the tension on that belt?
