The adhesive on my crankshaft pulley "let go" and separated a while back. Luckily I had just dropped the car off to have a tune done so it saved me a tow fee.

I'd check the threads inside the snout of the crank to make sure the bolt is actually tightening the pulley instead of just getting tight in it's threads. At 150lbs/ft I would think that bolt would never back out on it's own.....

the important thing is that the key is still good and the crank threads are good. you can prolly find a LW pulley for a decent price, they're worth it.

that's the thing the key BENT; so i'll be grinding some of it away to remove the timing sprocket and replace it with a new key from the dealership fun fun.
the bolt seems fine because i can thread it all the way down with out any problems and as for the replacement pulley i have a group a pulley i got new for ~$86 just waiting on it to get here via snail mail and i need to go pick up an outback rear sway bar that i spotted for a cheap upgrade

So I have a 94 Impreza L, and have had a similar "key grinding" issue. I've gotten a hold of a 2000 Impreza RS crank pulley, and it appears to be similar, but with a bit more weight. Will I have issues if I use this seemingly heavier pulley?

Did the keyway get rounded over or misshapen in any way? As long as the keyway (where the moonkey sits) is fine, you should be fine to replace the key and pulley. If the keyway is misshapen, you really ought to replace the crank....not fun.

Stock torque for factory bolt is 101 ft. lbs. Use medium strength locktite this time around.
