Default Oh my pully

I had a coolant leak. Changed the lower radiator hose. Filled her back up and let my friend take the car for christmas. He brought it back and said it overheated or got close and he shut it down and added antifreeze. Ok no problem.
finally got to it today. Turns out the cam pully separated and the grooved portion spun off, didn't damage the belt. The belt slipped back on to the bearing assembly and it chewed up a piece of the fan. There was a bit of a squeal. I thought ok. Coolant leak must be the waterpump.

then in the bottom of my engine bay there was the grooved portion. Oh boy. What do I do now lmao

You sure its a cam pulley not your harmonic balancer/crank pulley at the bottom of the engine? Buy a new harmonic balancer and have somone install it for you and presumably do a timing belt and water pump.

Year and model of you car SC300 or SC400? Sounds like you are talking about a SC300. Sa mentioned about it could be your harmonic balancer separated. If it is a non vvti motor it is non interference so you can replace the harmonic balancer and do a full t- belt, water pump job.
