[Vwdiesel] Engine eating pulley

Hi and thank you all once again for coming to my rescue. It's a huge relief to hear that I probably don't need to strip the crankshaft out.

It's a 1985, 1.6 TD in a T3 camper (vanagon) - Standard European spec. It has a 15mm bolt and a thick washer. The washer is smooth on both surfaces, although it could well have been different before hand, as there is now nothing left of the key-way on the pulley! Looks like I'll have to order a new bolt and washer when I order a pulley. 

Would it be possible to block-up the fly-wheel instead of removing the pan? Or would the torque needed strip the teeth???
