That's pretty much how it works without A/C. I've never looked to closely at
the A/C setup, but my non-AC cars go from crank -> over top of alternator
-> under water pump -> back to crank, you're looking at crank end,
running clockwise. I'm pretty sure the alternator mounting bracket is quite
different on A/C vs non-A/C, but I don't know if this would prevent you from
bypassing the A/C, provided you find the right belt size.
