Might that drill bit size be 27/64ths?   I think that is the correct denominator.  Never heard of a 63.

I believe the pin should only ride on the single long taper, not on the steeper angle at the bottom.

Aren't you a machinist? You could just make a cylinder and then drill and tap the top of it for a bolt rather than what Bosch did with the stud. You could even make it from aluminum until you find the profile you like then make a steel one.
I thought of that, figured I'd start with a "known" value. Who knows, it might be just right although it looks to steep at the beginning.

ABA water pump pulley, stock balancer, remove PS pump, remove v-belt pulley, super clean. The serpentine belt does the alternator and the water pump, no v-belt at all.

Why not use the stock TDI serp setup that came with this motor?

I'd use the AHU crank pulley, AHU serp bracket, AHU alt, serp water pump pulley and run a single non-A/C serp belt.

The 1.9 is running netter than it ever has. Still, I bought two of these and will mess around with some additional grinding.

I'n not entirely positive they will fit my 1.6 pump but they weren't too expensive.
