serpentine belt ?

My powersteering pump locked up on me today. As a temp solution i was thinking of bypassing it as im completely broke. I was wondering if anyone knows the length of the belt i need if i take away the power steering, or i can even bypass both ac and power steering if someone know the length of that. thank you for any help..

they never sold a 4.0 w/o power steering, i think, so your not going to find a belt for it. The 4 cylinders came without power steering. in the basic package tho.

well just an update to those who care... i just went ahead and bought a new power steering pump today. all went well til had to put pulley back on. after 3 attempts to get it on and it stopping halfway, i bought new pulley as well. now its done except i cant get the line to go in the new pump. I called and checked the part number its the right pump, i just cant get it to thread. very frustrating , i have given up for the day...

Anyone know of some little dumb thing i may be doing wrong?

Do the threads appear the same? Sometimes it can be a pain just because the line is at enough of an angle that the fitting can't thread in.

My replacement pump had different threads. I had to take the nut off the old pump and switch it with the new one.
