Should be okay. The only job of the keyway is to line up the crank pulley with the crankshaft. It's the crank bolt that holds the pulley in place. As far as the leak, it will usually leak a lot more when the engine is running that when it's sitting at idle.

Well i dunno what happened but it was making a weird noise, not like a clicking, maybe like a thumping i cant really explain it, i tried doing a video but the mic didnt pick it up. But after running a few minutes all of a sudden the ac belt(the biggest belt) started ripping apart so i ran to turn it off so i dunno if i put it to tight or not tight enough.

Maybe the A/C compressor is seized and when the A/C clutch engaged it caused the belt to shred? It's worth a check...

Is there a way i can bypass the compressor for now? I dont need it till summtime anyway. Can i just get a smaller belt? I think you may be right though because the ac pulley does wobble a bit and when i spun it with my hand when the belt was off it made like a grinding noise.

Just leave the A/C belt off; it's the only componant being driven by the A/C belt.
