hey guys so heres my problem I'm going to be facing...
i have a 1.6D 89 jetta and id like to remove the a/c compressor because the lines are already cut out and also remove my power steering. I've thought of replacing the lines but id rather just take the a/c completely out. i had an 89 16v gti and i had the problem of the water pump pulley never linking up with the crank and alt. pulley. i am 100% going to have this problem with this car. over the years I've tried pulleys from 1.8v fox lateral motor. I've tried stock 8v water pump pulleys that had no power steering. i even tried after market pulleys and that was the best bet but flipped backwards and bolted back on. it was still 3/4 of an inch off and resulted in changing belts often and lots of noise. i still do not know how to properly fix this problem
i understand i can do a serp belt conversation but it seems to be costly it seems. i am curious to see if theres alternative solutions to a serp belt. V belts are fine with me and due to the cost of a conversation id rather do a V belt at this time.
so to go over the full point of this post...
id like to remove power steering and a/c compressor from my 1.6D and run a better fitting water pump pulley and/or alt. pulley to make this possible. any info would be awesome!
