You want a AC pulley that is different from the stock AC pulley?  Do  you 
need a different diameter to drive the aftermarket compressor?

Bob - The car that I am working on was an original 65 A/C car. Somewhere -  
way before it came to me - the owner swapped in a 66 condenser and an  
aftermarket compressor. He managed to strip the mounting holes in the head as  
well, but that is another issue. The stock A/C pulley sits about 1/8" from  
the motor mount, making it impossible to put any belt on. Since I will be  
"relocating" the compressor, when I can fix the heads, I want to try to  move 
it all forward a little, closer to the balancer. That would give me enough  
room to change the belt. I know that since there has been a trend to  add 
A/C to cars which didn't have it, originally, there might be another  pulley 
around which would fit "closer" to the balancer.  That is what I am  seeking. 
The same diameter as stock would be fine. I might also try to modify a
