Help with Harmonic Balancer on Rebuilt Engine


I am swapping out a 2.5L for another 2.5L that I bought at Napa. When I went to reinstall the harmonic balancer on the new engine, the key on the crankshaft is different and sits higher. Instead of being all the same height, it gradually gets taller as it goes away from the crank.

Ultimately, the old harmonic balancer won't fit. Any ideas?

Any chance the Woodruff key is not seated fully?
