Crank Pulley needs 5mm machined off to use DE pulley w/ VE oil pump.
Or greg at gspec sells a spacer for $12 and also sells a rwd underdrive pulley for $135. I just purchased both.

Ps for those who dont know greg is VERY well known and regarded in the fwd sr community and gas the best customer service i have ever experienced.

Ps. Pulley is not yet on his website but they are in stock.

ummm...if your buddy makes spacers that allow 2 pieces of material to cohabitate the same space I'm gonna need several million....

turns out you probably shouldn't ask FWD guys about RWD stuff,

FWD pulley would need all new FEAD (front end accessory drive) and RWD pulley needs MACHINING, not a spacer.

He's talking about an underdrive RWD pulley that works with a VE oil pump and has the correct timing marks for the VE front cover.

...DEF....READ MY LIPS, you need to remove not add material, any RWD pulley will work if you take the 5mm off, A spacer is not needed.

You need a spacer unless you use the ve oil pump drive.

ummm....


wow Nevermind...that's such a ridiculous idea It had never occurred to me, how would one go about getting a timing cover head and solenoids and not have the Oil Pump Drive?

who would want to decrease the engagement on the oil pump drive?

I found no RWD VE corrected Pulleys on Gspec's site, and I found the little Alum spacer...it's not my first choice but It might not twist and bind your oil pump gears if it stays lined up I guess...

Just what a lot of fwd guys do, so the spacer exists to make it happen.

-Info removed because it was causing confusion. Hopefully it is clarified below-

All pulleys made by gspec have the 5mm removed already. The spacer is to run the ve pump with the de pump drive. There are/were lots of vvl heads and pumps floating around so people mix and match. If using vvl pump and vvl drive the pulley is fine as the 5mm of material is removed as above. Spacer is made from 6061. I am not sure why you would assume guys would run bs parts for years.

i know a guy who does that. says the key is to squirt lots of oil on the valve springs to keep them cool. but he still occasionally shoots a pushrod through the valve cover so apparently everything becomes a wear item.

I think the vet and 20v tensioners are different to match the different style timing chain. Is the N1 same as vet/20v? (so that would make total of 3 different tensioners?)



i'll try to dig up a better reference, this is all i see off hand:

I wonder which chain is better.
