I know of a sbc that has had the crank pulley welded on for years, bolt kept backing out and leting the pulley fall off so we welded it on. Its just a old farm truck so we figured there was nothing to loose. It has held up great.

not true, I plan to drop in a 2.5 when this motor dies. It's a direct drop in from a 98 scoobie for about $400.00 and will give it an automatic 50hp gain. I'm a racecar driver!!!!

Umm, use a 90 degree die grinder with a stone and remove the weld. Itll take a little while and piss you off but then you can remove and fiss problem

Use a pulley puller. The welds will prolly break off the crank snout. Buy a new dampener!
