Accessory drive pulley alignment pics

Good evening all, in the on going saga of determining what the hell is causing my belts to wear down I may have narrowed it down to my crank pulley being too recessed into the crank case. I had the front crank seal replaced a while back and Iím now on my 3rd belt. I just want to confirm my suspicions. If you all could post up what your alignment looks like with a measurement of how much space you have from the back of the crank pulley to the block I would greatly appreciate it! Hereís what Iíve got going on.

In this one you can see how far back the crank pulley is:

And the bane of my belts existence is this bolt head that shaved off the ribs of my belt. I have replaced it with an OEM bolt JIC the wrong one was installed.

Thanks in advance!
