Holden Vs Commodore V8 SS
I have myself a 1995 commodore vs ss 5ltr (Engines a VP v8) anways my issue is my fan belt is not lined up straight and it looks to be the water pump causing the issue, the guy I brought the car off was doing up a LH Torana. Im wondering if his mixed the two pumps up or have a got a dodgy after market water pump that is either too big or too small that its making the fan belt not line up dead straight. does anyone have this problem or can please help me???

Not sure about V8 but on the V6 there is a spacer that sits behind the pulley that pushes it out about 3mm. Are you saying that it's on an angle or is it sitting offset to what it should be?

Most likely different on a V8 but mine is 3mm thick thereabouts.

It’ll have an early single bearing pump on it. Replace it with a double bearing pump from just about any Commodore and you’ll be set. All models except ht that had clutch fans used the dual bearing unit.
