If the balancer has fallen off of the engine, it is very likely that the balancer has been damaged and will require replacement. The ideal repair would be to replace the harmonic balancer and the woodruff key only. If the woodruff key falling out has damaged the crankshaft to the point where a new woodruff key cannot be installed, unfortuantely the crankshaft will require replacement in order to fix this issue. If you are unsure of whether or not the crankshaft is damaged beyond repair, consider YourMechanic for a vehicle inspection to determine if the crankshaft can be salvaged.
