I found a flat idler and flipped the idler bracket over to see how that looked. It's a little wackey looking as it's not parallel with the belt. Probably not the best idea.

I marked the power steering pump reservoir as to where the rubbing was going on. Pulled it off then using some spacers clamped it in my shop press. I didn't want to deform the mounting surface. After getting it secured I used a 5/16 diameter punch, using the side of the punch and hitting it with a hammer was able to make a reasonably well clearanced area that works for the belt.

Got a slightly smaller belt and it all seems to look like it's going to work. Haven't run it yet but nothing is touching, so I'm going to try it without any idlers.

Got it all together, works fine without any idler. I'm thinking the original York compressor caused vibration in the belt and required the idler to keep it from hitting the water pump pulley.
