I've seen you can buy the key from Tegiwa etc but don't know if it comes with the pulley when you buy one. And yeah, arch liner off job.
Cheers mate, £200 for a pulley! Going to see if it just needs tightening first. Probably be a week or so before I can get working on the car again

Hopefully get it working proper soon as I’ve got a show to go to with some mates

So after removing my crank pulley to fit the new woodruff key and pulley, I noticed my crank key way was damaged.

It’s only used to locate and does not require strength once the bolt is tight. But as an extra measure I used some Loctite 660 on the woodruff key.

This glue is designed for crankshaft key ways specifically on rotating industrial machinery or crankshafts.

So that is now fixed but I will not be driving the car for a short while despite me having many plans for meets etc.

The YouTube link will describe why I need to check the entire car over. Sorry if you cannot understand my accent

No bolts on the alternator bracket wtf! Sounding like a bodge job and just left half arsed. Real shame for such a nice car! Hope it gets sorted. Great accent btw!

For all I know this could have been a garage timing belt job, I’m not going to throw hate at the previous owner even if it was his fault, I’m not particularly happy about it though

I could get all angry about it, but on an old car I’ve forgot to torque my driveshaft on one side after an engine conversion, came out on the motorway lol.

This does seem to be a lot of stuff to forget to tighten up though, add exhaust manifold bolts to the list that were half undone

this car was modified with a full exhaust and supercharger previously and taken back to mostly stock before sale by Brett.

That does make sense then. A real shame as he was a nice guy

If it hadn’t have damaged the crankshaft key way I would have been okay with it. Obviously with the new pulley and key plus replacing the missing bolts I’m at around 250 quid down
