Two Sanden applications I've worked on didn't need the idler. I just removed it. The slotted holes in the Ford bracket allowed enough adjustment of the Sanden adapter to get adequate belt tension. The 180 degree belt wrap is not prone to slippage, unless it's crazy loose. You do have to install the compressor and belt simultaneously.
Good to know, I'll wait to buy the idler. Do you have a NAPA or Gates number for the AC belt? There is currently no belt on the compressor.
