This is the pulley between the engine and the PTO.

I see its a bushing pressed into the pulley and one side of me says its meant to give or shear if there is a failure
It's not meant to shear, its just a cheap/common way to make a key/keyway in a stamped pulley. Depending on what it is , I would replace it.

Some new pulleys have those cracks in em, from where they slam the punch/die in em.
