TIMING BELT

1991 Geo Tracker

Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Geo Tracker 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

won't hold time, BUT in replacing the belt I have discovered a lot of gear play @ the crankshaft. The slotted " key" @ the harmonic gear moves about 1/16" before the belt even begins to engage. Is something else wrong? Or, is this normal tolerance.

Thanks,

Michael

Did you ever find an answer? The key on my `92 sheared off right after having the water pump replaced and I'm looking for answers on that, too.
