Just rebuilt my motor on a 63 with the crank pulley instead of a
balancer and installed it, now i am having a very hard time getting the
belt to fit between the motor mount bracket and the pulley, i made sure
the pulley nut is torqued , and have Gates belt called for, any ideas or
has anyone else had this issue.

Isn?t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different?

You have a harmonic balancer on your 63, and because it is thicker, the belt wont fit now. I had the same problem when I went to that pulley on my short stroke engine. I did it because the extra pulley thickness makes it easy to add magnets for a crank sensor for distributorless ignition. Anyways, to make room for the belt, you must also use a 1964 rear engine mount.
