A/C short belt ????? HELP !!!!!

OK, I need my AC

I was doing the conversion to 134 ( the cheap way ) and The low side being on the compressor eliminates any way to put on the new fitting..

I HAVE the 90 degree fitting, but it is my understanding that there is a SHORTER AC belt that allows a different placement of the compressor allowing the fitting to go on.

The trouble is that I have no idea what part # the belt is, or how much shorter it needs to be

Can anyone help me here ????
It's an early 944

I drove around LA, OC, & San Diego today ( 340 miles ) mostly stop & go with NO AC.. I have to put the AC on to kick in the 2nd fan..

Also, a NAPA part # would be great ...

Thanks again, Don

i am not firmilliar with an exact number, but if you have a patient parts person there is a solution. Loosen the compressor and swing it to the shortest possible belt position. take a tape and measure the path of the belt. ( best to use a fabric one or a piece of twine) note the measuement in milimeters and inches, also note how many grooves are on the pullies. Most belts are referenced by part number and length. Take the mesurements and the old belt to "napa" and compare the measurments to stock belts i beliebve they have a cross reference for the measurments to the belt. Find one slightly larger than what you measured but smaller than the origonal. I did it this way on my 928 when i deleted the air pump. I hope this helps
