    Went out and started the plow truck today and the smoke was flying. The Serpentine Belt was not moving. I wonder what is stuck?

    AC compressor comes to mind first. Take the belt off and see what won't spin?

    That is what I plan on doing tomorrow. I sure hope it is not the AC compressor. :(

    Provides drier air.

    Sounds like a straight up plow truck and a simple by pass of the A/C is a cheap fix. The lack A/C won't hurt.

    It is when I found out that some of the Ford AC Compressors are direct and do not have a clutch. :(

    You should take the belt off and spin everything to determine what is frozen.
