I'm adding power steering to my 36 Ford with a Mustang II rack. I'm ordering a triple groove pulley and will probably space the steering pump out to match the outer groove of the crank pulley.
Any thoughts on the balancer depth ?
As best as I can tell, yours looks OK. The end of the damper snout bottoms against the crank timing gear, so it can't go on too far unless you happened to grab a short snout damper from a SBC equipped w/a EFI/ECM reluctor ring (below, left).
