Brownstone I had a problem with a pump one time. I had to put a socket over the shaft and push the plate where the pulley mounts back a little.Also you may make sure your balancer is up all the way.

How far off are they? Sounds to me like the balancer is on the crank too far. (don't ask me how!!) Keep us posted.

I think the Corvette pumps are a little longer than a short pump, but shorter than a long pump. My Speedway catalog shows the short pump to be 5 7/8" from block mount to pulley side of plate, and 7 1/4" for the long. What's the one you have measure? Ken

thanks for all the help I figured it out. I went to the Stewart water pump webpage and discovered that the pre 69 gm pumps are a little shorter I bought one of those and evrything now lines up thanks for all the help
