Front accy pulley on 95 Outback. (2.5l)

Is that common for the pulley to strip like that? Oddly enough, I saw 2 yesterday. This Outback and a 91 Impresa at an auction. Both had the front engine pullies off and key had stripped the hole in the pully identically. (Vehicals from totally different parts of the country.)

The problem is that people don't torque down the bolt enough. The Subaru manual calls for 80 ft-lbs I think, but it should really be 110 ft-lbs! After doing my timing belt, I heard some stories and actually went back and tightened my bolt down even harder, because I'd like to keep my crank from being torn to pieces, thank you very much
I'm sorry though, the pulley from your XT6 won't work. The pulley on EA-series engines doesn't touch the key, it only has a little ridge that holds onto the timing belt sprocket.
You might wanna ask in the Marketplace to see if anyone has a spare pulley... Also, try this place for used Subaru parts. www.4subarusuzukikiaparts.com
