chevy 305 drive belt diagram/routing

Hello guys,
I have 78 Monte Carlo with 305 engine. It has alternator, power steering, air condition compressor and fan.
I bought the car with disconnected compressor.
Currently I have one belt connecting crankshaft, alternator and fan and second belt connecting power steering and crank shaft.

What is the correct way to get compressor connected and what are the sizes of belts?

I was looking at dayco web side and found the existing drive belt but don't know the size of the other one.

I have no option to go and look at another 305 as there is hardly any here

Thank you for your help,
Ivo

If you have the small (radial) compressor the belt length is 56 5/8. If you have the long (axial) compressor the belt length is 55 1/8.

On most of the SBC's of that era, the A/C belt runs on the power steering pulley also.
