everything smooth until now

I am rebuilding my 327,my first build,everything has gone real smooth until I installed the harmonic balancer.It seems to be seated too deep,the crank pulley is about 1/8 to 1/4 inch back from the waterpump pulley.The question is do I pull the balancer out or put spacers behind the crank pulley?

Re: everything smooth until now

Is it the short pump you're using? If so, you might have one of those 5 13/16" short water pumps instead of 5 5/8".

Re: everything smooth until now

If your using the pulleys from the factory the crank pulley will have a spacer that goes behind it. My 2 groove one did, but the single groove pulleys do not need this, as my after market one lined up fine.

Is this a 210hp 327 from '67-'68?

When you buy aftermarket pulleys you almost always buy them as a set since alot of manufactures make different dimensions if this is the case.

The only Mustang I'd ever own is a Fender.

It is a 210/327 1968,#'s matching,short waterpump..I am reusing the factory pulleys,new pump and balancer,I probably overlooked the spacer during teardown.Thanks for the info I will search my parts that came off the motor.

Did you get everything fixed? I would be happy to speak with you about your issue if necessary. My company manufactures aftermarket car pulley kits and we would be happy to share our knowledge base with you.

Re: everything smooth until now

Harmonic balancer always goes against the sprocket, h/bal always bottoms out.
Does the alternator pulley align with the crank pulley?
If it does, then the w/pump pulley mount may be in the wrong place on the shaft.
The w/pump pulley almost touches the pump casing and is in direct straight line with the h/bal pulley.

Re: everything smooth until now

I did get my alignment issue solved,the machine shop had a spacer that fit between the balancer and crank.The motor runs really great,has about 75 miles on it.Thanks for asking.
