Default Crankshaft "tooth"?

Has anybody had experience buying a new crankshaft and having it come without the "tooth"? I was about to put on the timing chain and realized I cannot get the crank pulley on because it's missing! I looked at my old one and sure enough, it's there.. Heres a picture of what I mean, the rectangle the goes into the groove. I really hope this is able to be transplanted as the engine is already in.. If not any tips on what I could weld in the new crankshaft to get around it?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

You mean the KEYWAY?
I would have thought it needed to be kept from the old crankshaft and reused.
Most machine shops (or Mc Master-Carr) stock key stock in various sizes...1/4", 5/16" etc and should be able to cut you a new 'key' to insert into the Keyway.

Don't weld anything, just insert the new key based on whatever width square stock fits. Hopefully, it is not of case hardened tool stock material.

It should come out, yes. I usually use a brass punch to take them out. But it should tap out pretty easily.

So I got it off! I used a punch. Issue now is when I tried to put it on the new crankshaft it slipped and went into the oil pan!!!! Is this magnetic? If I cant get it out of the oil pan will it just sit there without harming anything?

keys are always steel. They are usually easy to retrieve.

That would be a serious amount of force to put on an aluminum key!
