Chad, how many bolts are attaching the crank pulley to the damper, 6 or 4?
At a glance, I can't tell, but the big cup shape design of the rear of the crank pulley leads me to believe you have a '67 2 groove NON AC crank pulley on a '67 & earlier damper (balancer). That style damper & crank pulley can't be used with the 11 bolt timing cover.
The timing cover in the pic, as well as the water pump are the 11 bolt style. These are part of the pieces I've put together in many dozen "11 bolt WP/ PS changeovers". Changeovers which I've been putting together for '65-68 owners since the early 90's. The 11 bolt PS changeover is basically '70 Pontiac V8 model (exc V8 Firebird) pieces. The PS & pulley setup in my changeovers use the strap type alt brackets that were used on very early production '70 models, as well as ALL '69 model V8 Pontiacs with PS. When the setup is put together with the correct pieces, it looks nearly stock, but allows the use of the '68+ damper & 11 bolt "tall" water pump. Both of the latter are very common pieces, & typically avail affordably, as well as with the option for various SFI rated dampers & with quite a few water pump options.
