I know its early/late, and I know its a series two as well, but my car has the cross bar and dogbones as well. It is a 1998 SE. Straighten me up peeps.
i dont think you should have any clearance issues by the sound of it, since the oversized pulley is 5.5" compared to the stock 5" you just need an extra .25"(1/4") clearance all the way around the pulley for it to fit, actually just a tad more than .25" so that its not rubbing anything
If you could get us a picture of your water pump pulley and its surroundings, that would help also.
Im still checkin into this for us series 1 guys and might test fit one in the near future
