    Is there a mathmatical formula to calculate the difference between the length of the blue belt and the red belt in the attached image? I am intending on removing the blue wheel (compressor) while leaving the other two in place, therein making the blue belt too long. What is the formula for calculating the difference in lengths, removing the compressor to utilize a shorter belt, being the red one?


    This is being done on a 2007 Ranger with a 4 liter V6 engine. I am trying to avoid putting a string or something along the belt routes to simply measure. I also will not be putting in a bypass pulley in place of the compressor. If there is a 'formula', please share.

    Thank you.
