"Use a proper Puller & Installer"

The correct way to install a damper is to coat the crank snout and the ID of the hub with anti-seize compound and press the damper into place with a proper installation tool.

Many people are under the false impression that the crankshaft key is supposed to keep a vibration damper in place on the crankshaft snout.  This is definitely NOT the case.  The key is intended strictly to position the damper correctly during installation - it is the press fit between the damper Inside Diameter (ID) and crankshaft Outside Diameter (OD) and a grade 8 bolt properly torqued, that prevents the damper from spinning on the crank.  Consequently, the ID of a damper should NEVER be honed to provide a slop fit.  If a press fit is not maintained, a damper's effectiveness is minimized because it does not maintain firm contact with the crankshaft.
