Why not just cut down the Mounting spacers for the EL.

Cut them down to 30mm and also shorten the bolts by 10mm.

Std AU belt will fit.

in regards to the au knock sensor I wanna use it instead of using the el one how did you guys connect it up cause the pins of au one are small than the el one ive look at the wiring diagram to find which wire is positive and negative and it doesn't show it in the book it only shows what the wiring colours are like bk-w and y-r. ive pull the plug apart on the EL wiring loom to see if I could swap the plugs over to suit the au knock sensor and then came to a halt.
