Hello,

The manual actually does not provide the belt size for bypassing the A/C compressor.
To find out what size belt you will need, you will have use a string/rope and route it around the pulleys, bypassing the A/C, and simply take a measurement of it. Then use that as the size for the replacement belt.
You just want to make sure when you are bypassing the compressor the belt won't interfere with any other pulley.

I have attached the belt diagram and the replacement procedure below.

Let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
