    No worries Noel. No need for apologies.

    Hang loose for a while and some Citroen expert will doubtless get back to you.

    Think you'll find the belt pulley can turn on the crank to allow adjustment of the timing. On the HDi of the same vintage, it will turn about 10 degrees either way and is stopped by the key, but it may even freewheel on the petrol. It's secure when properly tensioned on reassembly.

    I've never heard of or seen more than one woodruff key being used anywhere, anytime. There would be no need.

    Thanks very much for the advice I was sure it had only one key when dismantled, but had to leave it for a week and "Doubt follows delay" kind regards Noel
