I'm pretty sure the pulley is off of the key. Looking at some pictures reminded me the key is quite short.

Personally, I would lossen the belt and take the pulley off and have a look into where the key is and see if it looks alive or dead and try and get the pulley aligned and all the way in. The pulley should press hard into the timing belt pulley.

This picture is what it looks like with the timing cover out of the way. The front pulley covers the rest of the crankshaft.

The timing belt pulley and the front pulley share the same woodruff key. If it comes loose, it will be bent pushrod time.

I thought you got one too, UD.

Looks to me like Brian's PS pump doesn't protrude through the plate enough to line up, but the pictures are so bad, it's very hard to tell.
yep, you gave me one and I use it, but that tool is useless if the hub/ keyway is compromised.

Well, it felt like the engine was turning over, but I'll follow the above to stop it from turning over to be sure,

Ugh...thanks John. Better to find out now than learn it the hard way.

The PS belt does look like a lucky lottery winner given that it is still there.

Yep, and it may be fortuitous timing. After replacing the panhard rod with my youngest daughter, we took it for a spin around the neighborhood to check and admire our work. Went to make a left hand turn and could feel a problem with the power steering as it was making an unusual noise and didn't want to turn the wheels. So I pulled the parking brake, had her jump in the driver's seat and turn the wheel while I looked underneath. That's when I noticed the PS belt was slipping on the pulley and was the source of the strange noise. Other than that, it drove just fine, so hopefully no major damage or timing issues hidden in there.
