Don't forget the stepped cone abutment washer that goes on the balancer pulley arr!

The steeped undercut provides a vital clamp load on the pulley and it becomes work hard over time.

You can't take short cuts and risks with this attachment.

Yep, definitely getting the washer as well. I wonder if I should get a crank case seal just in case. I've been told there usually isn't an issue damaging it when removing the pulley though.

Replace the seal for sure. It's a $15 part and there's no reason to risk a crank leak for 15 bucks. You will need to make a tool to push the seal in. You can use the old crank bolt and a couple of very large washers with a piece of wood as a spacer to make a cheap and quick DIY tool.
