Being in the process of changing the cam belt on Nutty I noticed that the belt pulleys on the crank shaft and water pump are not terribly well aligned, must be the best part of 2mm out. What is the consensus on creating a spacer and fitting that under the belt pulley of the water pump, good idea or is there something more sinister happening. The good news, so far nothing broken in the changing process.

Better to fit a washer behind the pulley on the water pump instead of cardboard, the cardboard will get wet overtime and rust the bolts so you may move problem removing them next time.
A little smear of copper grease on the bolts will help taking it apart next time easier.
