Remove all the adjustment bolts and clock the gear. Odds are it'll line up perfect then.

... but you're like me and won't feel like doing extra work, I know how that is LOL. Just remember when it comes time to do the belt again.

The car is sooooo low I figured that it would get scraped off. That was before I found out I have adjustable coil overs. I can raise it back up some. I can always wrap the bottom later from under neath!

Satan how dare you laff at my awesome work! :-p

Why WOULD I light weight crank pully?

And yes to the oil pump gear. That made sense to me.

I had heard tom speak about the pulley before that's one of the reasons I didn't try to get one. Plus they don't come in RED! 8-)

Now if someone gave me a pulley for free I might be interested in testing it! ;-)

I will be starting a build thread soon qweesy, in there I will list all of the stuff added to my engine and the things done to it. Along with all the Mods I will be doing internal and external. Keep your eyes open for that to get more data.
