Not sure what this has to do with a 7.3 diesel but the Cheapest method on a 3.8L N/A is the a/c bypass pulley. You can then re-use your existing belt.

When I looked at the belt re-routing suggested on this site, I found that it requires a different alternator mounting bracket than what was on my 95 car. If I had to replace the alternator mounting bracket, i might as well spend that money on a "proper" bypass pulley.

Suggestions on how to delete A/C

DORMAN AC Compressor Bypass Pulley: I paid $26.79 back in 2010; it's $27.99 now.

Note that this part fits all mn12. Of course you should double check that by looking up the compressors and seeing their application fitment.
