Good question.  My Kammback still has the V-Belts so it was easy enough to just leave the smog pump out of the loop.

1980 Coupe 258 - "Ginger
1972 Gremlin X 304

This can easily be done.  You just need to lay your hands on the idler pulley setup from a later non-smog-pump serp-belt Eagle (I think '84 and up); plus of course the shorter belt.
