will do - gonna try that hammer trick!
Mock up the waterpump and the pump pulley and crank pulley, see what the alignment is.Mine is at 2.8" and def wont go more-
SBC crank snout is never flush to the front face of the damperThe damper should both be tight to the timing gear and flush with the crank end, something ain’t right!
I cannot track your damper part number back to a Pioneer part. Looks like the Pioneer part for a 400 damper is DA-400 not 47400.
