a freind of mine purchased some long water pump pulleys in chrome for my motor as a gift, but they dont fit. why??? i know i have a long water pump. its an 1989 chevy corvette block, i actually replaced the waterpump with another brand new stock water pump. the bottom pulley which is the crank pulley seems so long that even if i get the top pulley that doesnt fit to fit,, the belt grooves will not match. the top pulley doesnt fit over the center hole. any help??? thanks guys!

heres a pic

If you got a water pump for a corvette. the shaft on it will be bigger then a non corvette water pump.

if you can get your fingers in between the back of the water pump and the timing chain cover, then it's a long pump. If you cant, then it's a short pump.
