Default cooling fan and pulley hubs

Hi All
Just replaced my cooling fan and hub as they were damaged (long story!)

Got the engine back in and went to fit the alternator pulley, and it wont fit - what mistake have I made? The 2 hubs (one is the old damaged hub from the cooling fan) that I have have two flat sides, but the hole on the pulley has three flat sides. The fan was fitted to the hub like the one on the right (I think...!)

What is the hub on the left - have I lost the correct hub for the alternator pulley, and found something else? All the bits that came off went in to a tub so it shouldnt be something that was kicking around my garage

Could I fit the pulley hub on to where the fan goes by accident?

Thanks for any advice you can give!

Mike

Hi all
I have had a look at the parts on line, and it looks like I have screwed up! The hub on the LEFT is for the fan, however, I am not sure what the hub on the RIGHT is for, as it will not fit the fanbelt pulley. Have you any suggestions?
Thanks for any advice!
Mike
