Loose weight from the motor compartment with the removal of the AC compressor and lines. ASP's free-turning pulley bolts onto the factory metal A/C bracket of your 1982-1993 Mustang 5.0L. This part is sometimes refereed to as a A/C bypass pulley as well as eliminator. It allows the correct rotation of all the accessories, but does require a 1/2" shorter belt in order to maintain proper belt tension.
What Is The Difference Between Air Conditioner Eliminator Pulleys And Air Conditioner Eliminator Brackets?
There are two options when deciding to delete your air conditioning system from the engine bay in your Mustang. We will start with the Eliminator Pulley. The eliminator pulley is sometimes referred to a bypass or a delete pulley as well as eliminator even though they are the same part. An A/C delete pulley comes with a free spinning idler pulley, mounted to a bracket that will bolt directly in place of your existing A/C compressor. It uses stock mounting holes and even your stock belt size in most cases. It is very simple to install and give a clean "factory" look. There are a few different styles out there either made of billet or cast aluminum. You can see our selection here, Air Conditioner Delete Pulleys And Brackets.
Now for the air conditioning Eliminator Brackets. These brackets are also referred to as A/C deletes, but they are very different from your pulley deletes. Delete brackets replace the factory power steering and A/C brackets with a bracket for a car that would NOT originally have come with air conditioning at all. This will actually move your power steering pump up into the location of your A/C compressor. This allows the belt to still retain the proper rotation, but you will have to use a shorter belt to run this configuration. Belt sizes can vary depending on your specific application.
