The washer should be protecting the pulley during all this grinding. You won't see the keyway (groove) until the washer is off.
which UK website is that please? I'll take a look!

Obviously I can't see the back of the washer yet, but the front is NOT manufactured 'FLAT' - IT IS A DOME SHAPE!! i.e. a slight curve, highest point in the centre where the bolt head was previously situated!
