Default 318 Pulley Swap Questions

I have some questions regarding both of my babies. Both of them have a 318.

For my rusty, but truly, trusty daily ('84 D150)...
The A/C does not work, so I just want to bypass it.

From the engine block to the radiator, the belt routing is as follows
Belts 1 & 2: Crank - A/C - Alternator
Belt 3: Crank - Water Pump - Power Steering Pump
Belt 4: Crank - Water Pump - Pollution Pump

If I can find a find crank and water pump pulley that was for a non A/C setup, would this be a simple bolt up project?

For my beauty queen (86 D150)...
The setup here clearly calls for a single groove alternator pulley. The previous owner had a two groove alternator on it. The the alternator belt does not line up. If you put the alternator belt on the rear pulley, it is too far back. If you put it on the front pulley, it is too far forward. If I can get a single groove alternator pulley, would changing the pulley solve this problem.

Any replies are appreciated. If you need more information or if my information is not clear, let me know.
I wasn't speeding. I was fasting.

trucks without a/c usually have a idler pulley that just bolt on in the hole where the a/c pump normally would be.
