Anybody else have this problem? The pulley is out of alignment. Anybody got one for sale?

Is it the alternator that is out of alignment or the idler pulley? The alternator can be adjusted with shims. The idler pulley needs a support bracket to prevent it from bending under the tension of the belt.

It's the sleeved bolt that is welded to the bracket that has the cracked weld. The alt. alignment is fine, the idler is way crooked.

Yeah....that pulley requires a support bracket to keep it aligned and prevent it from bending under load. There are products out there designed to take care of that. I'm no longer a vendor on this forum.....

Id recommend the CTS-V alternator mount and the vraptor idler. It is a solid setup and you will be happy with the results.

I did the CTS bracket conversion on mine and could not be happier.

Same here for the CTS-V alternator bracket and Shane's Idler pully setup. I'm running a 625 hp LS3 and heard the higher HP application would have that flexing/bending issue so I went this path from the beginning.
