Well, I took the radiator, belts and fan off and discovered the
pulley bolt and whatever resides in the crankshaft pulley are all
gone. So the end of the crankshaft was just spinning in the pulley.
Now my question is this . What all is missing? I know the bolt is, but
what did it hold in place to lock it to the crankshaft. This is a 1984
300d turbo , can someone direct me to a schematic or furnish me one.
None of my manuals describe the crankshaft from the pulley out. And if
anyone knows where I may purchase the items I need please LMK.
This group has been a tremendous help in the past . TIA--nw

OK ! Now I got a pulley bolt ,washer and dowels ordered. All of $15 in
parts. I had mechanics look at pix of the crankshaft end and they
physically inspected my harmonic balancer . I guess I left them
scratchng their heads. As no damage was done to either.
We can only figure whomever worked on the crankshaft last failed to
torque it down (they told me to torque it 275 ft/lbs) and it backed
out via vibration. if anybody has another idea as to what happened
please feel free to speculate..The one thing that is really odd is
that the harmonic balancer sheered both dowels in half . I guess
without the bolt they are useless.--NW
