The crankgear breaks because of an irregular wear pattern on the camshaft..
If you carefully inspect the camgear you will likely find 3 to 7 teeth in a row slightly damaged..
The crank and cam must be replaced as a set...however..the alignment in the block that caused this problem may recreate the problem in 1000 hours or so...
This problem is limited to horizontal shaft engines...never seen happen on a verticle..
