On that pulley check to make sure that it fits on the crank properly and doesn't have a big gap, some of the aftermarket pulleys are more narrow so the bolt doesn't hold them tight.

This may not apply to the engine you bought, but I have seen salvage yards remove engines with a forklift/claw lift in a really harsh fashion.
They would cut the mounts and stub axles, then grab the engine and lift it out.
The engine, radiator and tranny would come right out, but sometimes would fall back into the engine bay or onto the shop floor.
Those two specific salvage yards are in Memphis, TN, and they sold most of the engines for the aluminum, but once in a while a tuner would want one, and they'd sell it for cheap.
Anyhow, if the engine was moved with machinery, the pulley could have sustained a hard blow to the rim, angling it to the direction of the shaft socket on the pulley, or even bending the crank end- right at the main.
Just athought. good luck.

Turn it by hand and see if it wobbles (like out of round). There's another option...
