If that bolt is not in situ the oil will drain out, that holds the damper in place.

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?

Maybe you could try using a longer bolt of same thread size to insert and try and pull the shaft down to the open hole . . If need to I think you can top up the oil thru that bolt hole . .
