View Full Version : Pulley Issues... Crank/ spacing?

Ok I have a a '94 Z28 that the previous owner swapped in another LT1. After pulling the A/C compressor (seized, going w/delete) I noticed the crank pulley is about half an inch more forward than the rest of the others (about two grooves on the belt). Should I shim the bracket holding the others or do you think my crank pulley is pulling away (Replace)?...Hard to tell if it did or not, but I think it had been like this for some time just by looking at the crank pulley wear....HELP!

Pulleys dont get misaligned on their own. I wouldnt trim anything yet. Make sure everything is tight and secure first. Is the crank pulley the only one that is off or is anything else loose?

Yes the others line up fine (a/c, p/s, alt.). It's just the crank but, it seems tight, I'll try to see if I can get it on any further. I have about 5/8" between it and the opti.
