Last friday my girlfriend was driving to work and my '93 Shadow ES quite running.
I went back later in the afternoon and got the car running. After we got the car home I noticed what looked like the mounting screws that hold the pulleys to the balancer had snapped off. Or fallen out..
Yesterday I did find out the screws were all there. What had actually happened was the balancer cracked at the center hole and this allowed the large center bolt to loosen.
Working on the car today it's obvious the balancer chippped off the locater key that goes through the crank timing gear.
Is it possible to replace the key in the crank without removing all the parts needed to do a timing belt, water pump repair on the car?
I did buy a new balancer today at Auto Zone.
