Just a follow up...
As little as the sump bushing was worn...the PTO bushing was grooved..
Hindsight tells me that the engine was run low on oil ...or with filthy oil for an extended period.
The engine...being on a Lazer Z...has belt tension on both ends of the crank..
The lack of lubrication allowed the crank to eat into the bushings...causing the gears to be misaligned..eventually cracking the crankgear loose..
