I got my bolt out with a drill bit and easy out. Does anyone have a preferred metal bonding epoxy to fix the keyway?

Do an advanced search in the Write-up section. There have been members who have used partial keys, or made their own.

The key is for establishing an index. Once the parts are properly torqued with additional angle there is little or no stress on the key.

Double check that the timing chain key is not slipped. If it is, the engine will run poorly.

First gen mazda miata owners have a chronic issue with slipped crank keyways. There is a common repair using a loctite product, I would give it a google.

Half of the key is still underneath the time chain gear and its still lined up. Let me know if there is more I should be looking for. Of the pair of keys I ordered, I cut one in half and filed it down to fit and JB kwik-welded it in place. After a day, I filed down the new keyway square and put the new HB on. Tomorrow the flywheel lock should come and I can get it put back together.
