Re: A/C Belt idler pulley on water pump issues. (vw_nick)

I am not sure why on the 16v VW uses the water pump pulley with the bearing????? VW doesn't use that set up on the 8v cars with A/C and powersteering. I am not running P/S on my 16v so I got rid of the waterpump pulley with the bearing and am using a pulley from a 8v car. The offset was a little different (offset to the inside) so I put the old P/S pulley on the lathe and cut out the center and I am using it as my spacer between the waterpump and the waterpump pulley to line up the pulleys. Looks factory stock and works like a charm. This set up probably won't work if you are still running the P/S but then again I never tried it.
