I have a 350cu.sbc long water pump. Im running vintage air. I bought 3 groove pulley for the crank and 2 groove pulley for the water pump for long water pump. I bought compressor bracket for long pump and alt. bracket for long pump(Billet Specialties)11420&114 21.Everything lines up great.
My problem now is my power steering pump pulley won't line up with the back groove on my 3 groove pulley where it suppose to go. I have power steering bracket for long water. I don't know if I got the wrong power steering pump or the wrong bracket. Something isn't right. The pulley is about 3/4 inch from going toward the motor to line up with the back groove. Anybody had this problem?
Anybody got any part# that will work.I need all the help I can get. Thank you much.

The problems you are having are typical.
I'm sure you know but there are several PS Pulleys available.
"My problem now is my power steering pump pulley won't line up with the back groove on my 3 groove pulley where it suppose to go"

I think you may find the with the PS Pump mounted on the driver side the pulley will need to line up in the second grove.
I thought I could use regular GM pulleys on all of this, this is nothing new the parts must be out there.
I must have 30 or so posts on this forum when I was trying to get this done.
I gave up on finding GM pulleys and ended up ordering pulleys from CVF Racing.
