SBC Gilmer pulley kit

I'm thinking of getting a Procomp Gilmer pulley/belt kit, but need to know if the crank pulley extends any further forwards / is deeper than a regular V-belt aluminum pulley. Reason is I have very little clearance in front of my regular V-belt pulley.

Anyone know?

Kit car (not available in the States). I have (from memory and from sight) about 1" of clearance between the front of a regular aluminum V-belt pulley and a chassis brace.

I will go out in the shop and look and measure to see how much longer it will be if any ok.

If you could give me the size (front-to-back) of the Gilmer crank pulley, that would be GREAT. That way, I can compare with my existing V-belt pulley. Really appreciate the offer

No problem, Mine measures 4 3/4 front to back on the glimmer crank pulley, Which on my car it's like 1 3/4 or so longer then the stock v-belt pulley.
But what you need is the 4 3/4 to do your measurement's. To know if it will work for your application

Thanks! Unfortunately, I've measured my existing crank pulley and it comes out at 2.54" deep. I scratched my head for a while and determined I could probably JUST about fit the Gilmer pulley in there, but it would only leave me with about 0.25" clearance, which would make removing the pulley and/or the belt impossible without pulling the engine. Think I'll have to pass on the Gilmer kit. Shame... they look very trick.

I can understand that. That's pretty tight don't need that if you ever have a issue there.
