If you look at the end of the crankshaft slot you will see it tapers as it gets closer towards the block and the taper is upwards, so the key goes in with the tapered side facing down and the two tapers fit each other tight so the key doesn't slide too far back. You can put the key in the channel with the tapered side facing down and towards the block, and then slide the pulley over the key.

Really appreciate it, i shouldve paid more attention when removing it. I figured it was part of the crankshaft and nearly $#%# myself when it popped out when removing the pulley

No worries, I just took apart my B-series Integra for a timing belt change, I had one key for each cam and the crank uses two keys, my biggest challenge is not losing the keys after they come out. They are so small and always seem to drop on the ground at inopportune times, lol. I refer to them as tic tacs
