I just took off the off the crankshaft pulley on a 95 subaru, 200k miles. The rubber ring in the pulley is cracked every 1/2", on the radius, but otherwise looks oK. No doubt it's the original pulley. I don't understand what the rubber ring is for, but the car has been operating fine.

Is there any problem with reinstalling it?

I think it's just there as a dampener.

I'd put a different one on, make sure it's TIGHT.

If that rubber separates your accessories belts will stop.

I have one used one left.

I'd probably just buy new. Dorman used to have a Chinese one that wasn't priced too badly when I priced them. Not a sophisticated part.
