Well what you are looking for is the Tensioner Pulley here is what it looks like, however this is the back side....

Ok, now if you are planning on going out to purchase a belt and just get one for that engine without A/C it won't work. What you will need to do is get a piece of rope/string and work it around to bypass the A/C. then measure the string and subtract about an 1 1/2" or so. that way you will be conpesating for the Tensioner.
