Q: Replacing a harmonic balancer pulley

asked by on

Hello, I bought the bmw with the harmonic balancer pulley off already and I didn't know it was removed when I bought it (auction). I go and try to start the engine without realizing the pulley was missing. now I bought the pulley, my question is because I tried turning the car on am I going to have problems with the timing once I install the new harmonic pulley?

My car has 65000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
