    Unhappy Camshaft key broken

    Hey guy new member here but ive been browsing the forums for a while now.
    Today ive come with a problem. The key for my camshaft broke. (not sure if im calling it the correct thing) but it causes the pulley to loosen. Any advice do i need to replace the whole shaft or can the key come off. Ill try to upload pics of the broken part later.

    OK ran into 2 problems today, the belt tensioner bolt was stripped so i got hell to remove it (>_> who ever had this car before set me up for hell). But i got it off. Now the problem im encountering is that i cant remove the gear.

    Ok got it off this morning using 2 pullers. (had to take the jaws off one and up it on another but got it off non the less)

    Thanks guys for the help.
