oh no! I done broke it!

So im trying to put a new timing belt on my truck. FINALLY get the crank bolt out, then i pull on the pulley and SNAP, the cast iron part of the pulley cracks, and the pulley comes off. So now i need to buy a new one but im not sure if its one whole piece, or if it comes apart, looks like the start sprocket might pull off??

Does anybody know if i need to buy a new pulley with a new starter sprocket? or do they come apart?
Also, was this my harmonic balancer?
Is there anywhere i can get performance (or regular) replacement parts for this ?

You should be able to get an aftermarket Harmonic Balancer through Dorman. Make a few calls. Expect $100 +/-

the balancer/pulley is one piece,and acording to service manuels doesn't have to be removed to replace belt,just remove the outer cover.

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.

thanks for the input, would have been nice to know that yesterday. i found a used one for $60 from the wreckers. probly best it broke, it was showing signs of wear from commuting on gravel roads.
