[V8] Timing Belt -- crank pulley

Hello all,

I just tore into my beast for a TB replacement and found something that
horrified me: the crank pulley that drives the TB has 3 cracks, down 3 of
the 4 bolt holes that hold it to the harmonic damper.  These cracks run
along the splines from the front to rear faces of the pulley, which is
now held together ONLY by the presence of that ring that is (from what
I can tell) spot welded on.  Needless to say, the car is still in pieces
and I'm trying to hunt down a new pulley.

I'm not sure what has caused this to occur, but I thought I'd pass along
the info in case anyone else is changing a belt any time soon.  BTW, the
car has 200k miles on the clock...
