    what keeps the crank shaft pulley from spinning ?
    the timing belt gear appears to be in perfect condition, but i can’t keep the pulley tight enough against it to keep it from just spinning. this started as i was driving down the road last week, it’s in the yard now awaiting me to fix it.
    is there a key that connects the crank to the pulley thats missing ?

    completely confused here !
