Was this in the bottom of the pulley housing?

What did the fastener look like?

If you bolt the fan back on, you could start the engine and run it briefly just 
to check to see if the noise was gone. I realize that it might be hard to hear 
with the muffler off, and it might also upset the neighbors.

Clamp a piece of flat steel in a vise, steel piece sticking out the side. Slide 
the fan housing over the steel with the hole facing up and the steel under the 
hole. Tap the topside down with a small hammer and work slowly. I find that I 
can generally make these quite nice again with just a little work.
