If I remember correctly,the pulley mounting stud isnt quite long enough when using the double V belt pulley. If that is the case, machine down the inner flat surface of the pulley so you can get the nut on.

I THINK they will line up...... maybe sdomeone else who knows for sure will chime in. If they dont line up, I suppose the alt or back side of the pulley could be shimmed to get everything lined up.

I have a brand new 3G that I orderd with the 2 groove pulley and wiring kit for my 85, so yes you can get the correct pulley. I'm just waiting for a warmer day to install it.
