Can anyone advise is there normally any spacer on the crankshaft front between the shoulder and the nut or is there only the gear drive, pulley, keeper and nut.
Thanks in advance Mart

"Spacer"

There is a flat large diameter "slinger" to keep oil away from the seal.

I don`t think the seal opening is large enough to put it in if you left it out.

Yeah, and it often is needed to get enough stack height to be able to tighten the crank nut. Not sure if it varies car to car, but I have a 750 engine lacking it, and the nut runs out of threads before it tightens up.

Slinger

More importantly is the oil seal not making contact with the pulley body.
Better to remoce the oil seal and trim the slinger until it can slip through the hole. It will still serve the designed purpose.
Then pulley alignment is where it was designed to be although difference is slight.

You can always put a washer/shim behing the nut (or bolt) to achieve a tight assemvly.
