So, what does this rubber O-ring in the stock pulley do? Like I said, it may dampen the accessories from the crank, that is it.

If you don't believe me, why isn't there some type of dampener on the flywheel side? The harmonics of the transmission can go right through the clutch and to the crank, or vise versa.
Good point.
