Alright well i have finally had my first real problem..... the seal on the harmonic dampner on the crank pulley gave and now i need to replace the pulley.

Blue locktite won't hurt a thing, and the torque for that size bolt is about 18 ft-lbs (it's not usually a place where a torque wrench is used). Most crucial about the job is that the mounting surface behind the pulley is clean (a shot of WD-40 is a good idea) and that the pulley be mounted completely flat to the crank.
