Power Steering Pulley, SBC

Power steering pulley on a '69 Chevy C-20, 350 SBC with AC. Are the PS pulleys different with air conditioning compared to non-air? I replaced my PS pump and pulley and the new pulley lines up where my AC compressor belt would go on the crank pulley. It needs to come out a notch if I'm ever going to run AC. Do to being a ******* I no longer have the old pulley which was bent anyways.

Is it the short water pump system or long water pump? both systems were different. 1969 was the year GM abandoned the short leg pumps other than for the corvette which were used well into the 80`s. Then they did something even dumber with the long system by adding the air compressor on the drivers side of the vehicle so it added clutter everywhere. If your truck came with a short pump system and you used pieces from the long the pulley`s won`t line up.

It's a short water pump. I believe GM used short pumps a little later on the trucks. The pulley I bought was just some generic chrome one from Summit. I'm not throwing the belt now cruising down the freeway, but I would like to step up to AC at some point.
