Hi John - thanks for the offer but we are going to try dropping/moving back
the rear cross-member first. I did think about the pulley, but apart from the
problems of undoing the nut with the engine out I doubt we could refit it with
the engine in, without pulling the rack forwards! If I had to do that I'd
rather do it first and leave the pulley alone.

I encountered this problem years ago. As I recall, there were at least two
different size diameter crank pulleys. I was installing a later engine
my chrome bumper 1973 and encountered the same problem. I had to change to
the smaller diameter pulley to clear the steering rack. I hope this helps
I may still have both sizes of crank pulleys. If you need dimensions I can
take a look through my parts bin.
