LS7 in 2000 Camaro

I picked up an LS7 crate motor for a 5th generation Z-28. I'm putting it in my 2000 Camaro. The harmonic balancer on the LS7 is offset towards the timing cover as is the water pump pulley and will not line up with the accessory pulleys on the LS1 in my car now. The LS1 harmonic balancer and water pump pulley are offset towards the radiator.

Can I put an LS1 harmonic balancer and water pump on the LS7? I read on other forums there might be a clearance issue with the LS1 water pump and the LS7 timing cover.

If the LS-1 parts won't work, what are my other options?

Thank you.

Personally, I'd look into getting an ATI Fluidampr. It's a replacement for the harmonic balancer, and I'll bet they can make one that is suitable for an LS7 but designed for a 4th gen accessory drive.
