Problem replacing crank pulley woodruff key
To begin with, I’d like to thank you for all your videos you developed to assist people in fixing their on car. If you could please help me with this issue please
I removed crankshaft pulley/harmony balancer including woodruff key, now that I want to put the key back inside it does not want to go all the way inside. I tried old key and still can’t get it in. What would you recommend I should do? In most videos it shows removing and placing back in very easily, but I can’t
how are you putting the key in?
I followed recommendations and still can’t get key in. Suggestions
it does not want to go all the way
Then get it started, lightly tap it in, and then use the pulley and nut to drive it in the rest of the way.
