I received a private email from Seth saying that the car at one time had been rear-ended. That may be his problem, as he states that it may have had the rear frame rail shoved forward a little and not corrected. So he may have to specially machine a pulley for the job.

Also, there are two "stock" pulleys that can be used, the a/c pulley and
the smogger pulley. The latter is a little smaller in diameter. That may
