Not too familiar with that engine, but never use a hammer to press it on. Go to your local Kragen, Shucks or autozone, they have a harmonic balancer installer in which you can rent. It simply screws into the center of the shaft and evenly presses the harmonic balancer onto the crankshaft.

The engine has a harmonic balancer on it, but if it is off, it is easy to re-install. Simply line up the key and tap it on most of the way and torque down the center bolt.

No, a rusted harmonic balancer will not prevent the engine from turning over.

A bad harmonic balancer can cause a knocking noise. The harmonic balancer doesn't actually produce the noise, but it can cause the noise in the engine.

You can tighten ANYTHING too tight. EVERY bolt and screw has a specific torque specification. Look up what the torque specs are for the balancer bolt on your engine and tighten it to the specification.
