Angry 92 Crankshaft Problem

I was driving my car yesterday when all of a sudden all the lights in the dash lid up. I thought that the belt had broken so I turned the car off after pulling to the side of the road and then went and looked at the engine and found that the belt was there. So I started he car again and all the lights turned off. As I was getting home the lights lid up again and the temperature rose to hot. I turned he car off again and opened the hood and still the belt was there. I turned the car on and went and looked and the crank pulley was loose, it was wobbleling. When I got home to tighten te bolt, the bolt was as tight as it could be. I broke the bolt and the pulley would still not come out. I used the tool to pull the pulleys out and it came out, to my surprise the crankshaft woodruff key had broken and bented the crankshaft and really messed up the pulley. The bolt to the pulley had broken because the crankshaft bented and squished the bolt. So I guess if anyone has a crankshaft for sale with the pulley let me know at

I've got a good used crankshaft for your engine. It's for sale if you want it, out of a 92 3.0L. Replacement requires removal of the engine so make sure that replacing the entire engine isn't your better option. Not that I don't want to sell you the part, just I want to make sure that replacing the crankshaft is your best option. The crank came out of an engine that blew it's combustion seal. I am planning to eventually build a stroker motor out of that core so I won't be re-using the stock crank. The motor was running when it was pulled, but letting combustion pressure into the cooling system so I am 100% certain that the part is good. I can also throw in the hub and damper with it. I've got a long weekend planned so i wouldn't be able to get the ball rolling till next week but if you decide you want it message me through the board and we can figure out the details.
