Listen to the boys that makes sense to me as well engine looks off to left and would account for belts being misaligned also. Even if you straighten that engine pulley it looks as though it still needs to be adjusted toward front of SB a bit. Although as Lotts and Cutter said if you loosen engine bolts and try not to only straighten the engine left to right you might be able to shift it forward a bit too. As others have also stated whomever did the engine swap did not take too much care....Rush job not done well.


Measure twice cut once!!!!



Belt guide would not put a groove in your drive belt it is the Drive tension pulley making that groove in the middle of your drive belt due to engine sheave/pulley being misaligned.
