I dont think its repairable. Once they come apart, u have to toss it. Anything is "fixable" but its not worth your time or energy. It will definitely fall apart again. Now's your chanch to put in a performance one. If $$ is an issue, get one from the wrecker.

first you will need to remove the belt. then you might have to remove the electric fan. (depending on what engine you have) then you will need remove the bolt from the harmonic balancer. i think its a 21 mm. then you need to get a harmonic balancer pulley puller. you can rent one at your local auto parts store. install the puller and remove the harmonic balancer. then put new one on by using the bolt. reinstall all components in reverse. this one is pretty easy to do. please rate thank you.

1998 grand cherokee limited crankshaft crack?

To identify the crankshaft, with the belt removed, it is the only item that will turn when you crank the engine over.
I've seen harmonic balancers fail but rarely a crankshaft.
Some P/S systems will "push" some fluid out when you steer without the pump running. Concentrate on repairing/replacing the balancer, then re-diagnose the P/S problem after that is taken care of.

Harmonic balancer rubbing on the timing chain cover

The rubber in the balancer has broken down and the inner and outer pieces shift and rub on the cover. You need a new balancer.
