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.
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.
