And for Your Benefit Westy, here are a couple of pics of the bypass:

Belt View TOP (Alternator) <http://i18.tinypic.com/2cf9p2x.jpg>
Belt View BOTTOM (CS, PS, WP) <http://i19.tinypic.com/2qd95js.jpg>

You can see the Belt runs to the WP rear pulley and runs off it. I hold the
tensioner in place with two metal brackets I salvaged and bolts into the old
AC brackets, this holds the tensioner in place and tight. Its been set up
like this for 3 months now and it still runs better than when the AC was in.
When I do put the AC in I plan to either run the AC off the Alternator or
run a seperate belt for it, possible off the crankshaft.

Belt Used was a Gates 7360 / 11A0915
The pulley used is rather large and the belt nearly bottoms out on it but it
has yet to squeal or heat up, so a bigger belt should not be needed
