Question about 1992 Honda Prelude
I didn't TORQUE the bolt over the crank pulley, and after two weeks of driving, my bolt, followed by crankshaft ;/ underdrive pulley fell off about 35-40 mph. The car died instantly, ran over the pulley, alternator belt was found a hundred feet back intact. Tried to start the car, and it would only spin really fast. towed it home. Upon pulling off the balancer pulley, I saw that the key had bent out, and crank key hole was opposite the balancer pulley.
What damage could I / did I do??? There appears to be no damage other than the missing pulley and bolt. Got a new pulley, key and bolt, about to put them on. Any ideas???
Make sure you check timing and the belt. if it spun don't risk putting it back on. Hope you got a new key. TIMING is important so you don't stick a valve through the top of your piston
