      I cut my head and I need help

      I cut my head back to a good surface for the new head gasket. It took .035" to clean it up. Now the timing marks won't line up because the distance from the cam pulley to the crank pulley has changed also. Are there parts like an oversized idler pulley or an offset idler pulley to take up the belt so the marks line up?

      I really didn't want to tear it apart again. I am a machinist and was going to make something but thought maybe there was something I could buy to make it easier.

      I figured I have 2 options. Either make a bushing fir the idler pulley so I can shift it to take up the difference in length between the cam and crank or cut a new keyway in the crank pulley to correct the alignment.

      I’d say do the math and cut the crank gear.
