I believe the type II engines have a bracket in front of the main pulley that you have to remove. With it removed, you still have to pull the two front engine mounts and then jack the engine up to get the pulley out....otherwise the subframe is in the way. I had to do this when I did the TB/WP on my GS but didn't need to do it when I did the head gaskets on the 91 sedan.
Hope this helps.
