bandsaw pulleys

I want to upgrade my 14"delta BS from a 3/4 hp to 1 1/2 hp
I have to drop it down to a lower place on the stand because this motor is 2" longer. The problem is that the closest I can get the 3" motor pulley to the stand is still 1" further out than the BS pulley itself. One thought I had was to replace the 6" BS pulley with a double 6 which would get it within 1/4" of the motor pulley. Or try it as is & see what the vibration is like & how long the belt last.
It is also conceivable that I can move the BS on the open pyramid type stand 1" closer to the back of the stand?
