Crank pulley? kinda odd?

I think it probably has more to do with engine timing and smooth idle than a bent crank at least in my case. I have noticed improvement since I replaced my plugs, but that doesn't mean it was BECAUSE of my plugs.
Also I noticed when I re-sealed the oil pump that the T-belt cover under the pulley had worn away as the pulley rubbed against it. It was warped, so it's possible that the extra friction on one side of the pulley was causing the shimmey.
Or, maybe the pulley wasn't torqued right and it's actually mounted on the crank a slight angle instead of true 90 degrees.
Take it off and inspect the area, see what you find.
