i need help!!!!

i need help on a situation i have. I have a 97 jeep grand cherokee laredo that i have swap another engine to it and i've been running it for couple years now. however, the water pump fail on me recently and had another one put on. then the idle pulley shot on me and replace it too. However, i notice that the belt is riding half way on the fan pulley and not aligned with the whole pulley. So, basically i been riding with the belt riding on half of the pulley. i checked the alignment of all the other components( a/c compressor, idle pulley, belt tension, and alternator) and it all aligned together except the water pump pulley was sticking out farther then the rest about maybe half inch out. after, researching other jeep water pumps and what pump fits, i think the engine was from a cherokee instead of a grand cherokee. but the water pump from the cherokee don't have a fan clutch put on like the pump for the grand cherokee. which, i think it will fix my problem because it doesn't stick out as much. however, because there is no fan clutch with the water pump for the cherokee, im stuck on what to fix my problem.

I was wondering if anyone have this problem before or suggestion to this. Also , if anyone knows if other fan pulleys from other vehicle that can be use that is little bit wider so the belt can ride on instead of half of the pulley.

pls, let me know any suggestions that will make it work.
