Post Crank Pulley not turning

I have a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim with v-6 engine.
The engine runs and the car drives fine except, the main crank pully is not turning at all (hard to steer though with no belts turning).

I reached down and touched the crank-bolt with my finger and it is turning just fine.

Is my key-way broken? orf perhaps, the main crank pulley wheel is shot ?

Any helpful suggestions from the pros out there ?

One of two problems- The keyway is broken providing they didn't already switch to the splined pulley by then. The more probable one- There is a rubber piece on the pulley that sits just inside of the belt track. This rubber pad will wear down and when it does the belts stop turning because there isn't enough friction to move all the accesories.
