  1. Hi Everyone, Thanks first of all to everyone since I have read numerous threads to get as far as I am with my crankshaft pulley repair. The pulley had a significant wobble and the fan belt kept working its way off the PS pulley even though it was tight when I initially installed, reinstalled, now it just throws it off right away. So I have two questions now before I go further. 1. Woodruff key: It doesn't appear damaged, can I leave in place or if no how to remove? I have not taken out radiator or fan as of yet, trying to avoid. 2. It seems that the wobble has create a massive amount of metal shavings everywhere. It has also eaten through my cover and lots of shaving in there. I am able to do a timing belt repair but cannot do for a few weeks. Would I get away with installing the new pulley and replace cover when do timing belt? The cheapest crank pulley I can source is $170 new from Napa or $100 used from salvage. If I am redoing the timing belt I will put in the extra and buy new pulley, just hate to spend the money and wreck the new part. I am unsure why the wobble, should I be digging deeper or is this just a pulley fail? Appreciate any input or opinions ~ thanks! Rachel
