no mechanical fan, serpentine belt routing

I'm going to be deleting the mechanical fan in my 98 12 valve, but am unsure how to route the serpentine belt correctly. well I could probably figure it out, I am most concerned with ensuring the belt retains proper tension to spin the water pump and alternator without slipping. I'm assuming that's the exact reason the belt tensioner is there in the first place but people in other forums are saying its not worth the hassle, that the fan clutch helps prevent slipping, and to just leave the fan clutch on without the fan. But whats the point of that? I don't want an extra, "useless" moving part on my truck.

Save your money and just use the pulley without the clutch and fan bud. If you truly want it gone, take it off and hunt the correct belt size so the tensioner is sprung in the same position. The bearing on that fan pulley is a pretty stout peice, probably a bunch out there with a million miles on them.

This is exactly what I did on mine. I have electric fans and just retained the stock fan pulley.

Thank y'all for the help. Gonna hunt for the correct size belt then, if I can not find one then I'll just use the oem belt with the fan pulley. Just cleaning up the engine bay on my 100,000 mile 12 valve, Wanna make it look as nice as possible since I'm taking the front case off for KDP.

They are flex a lite brand dual fan setup. I will see if I can dig up a model number. I know they are a slim style bc I was short on space between my radiator and engine.
