Re: 2007 hard crank

Turn the key to run for about 2 seconds, then turn it off. Do this two or three times and see if it starts up.

Re: harmonic balancer/timing chain sprocket key

I don't see anything wrong with the harmonic balancer ??? maybe the photo just isn't showing the damage. As long as the area that contacts the shaft seal isn't buggered up, it looks good.
