Original part has 27 years and 180K+ miles...might oughta replace it before the ring slips or flies off...
From prior work it has a smear of anti-seize on the mounting flange and center hole (not the bolts, lol), so it’s a breeze to remove, which reduced the aggravation a little.

First try: ATP 102056 (not pictured)--misaligned bolt holes, can’t mount. Useless.

Second try: Dorman 594-017--center section is backwards, and because the front and rear depths are unequal and the outer ring lips are assymetrical (front thicker than rear) the part can't align with belt system. Useless.

Off to find another tomorrow. Hopefully the third time will be a charm...

I had that same problem on my Impala (damper center section installed backwards). If I were to do it again, I'd just drill out one of the bolt holes a bit and run it. The center opening is what lines it up on the hub.
