|I changed the sprocket, put everything back in place without ever touching that key.|

Did you notice and replace the large o-ring that helps to seal gearbox oil leaking out at the g/b sprocket?
Yes, thanks. I had a new one ready to go.
Pretty tough to do if you follow Plewsy's method.
Much easier done on the bench where gravity works for, rather than against you!
Man, that makes sense. It was way too late and I was pretty much brain dead !
Keep on Froggin'
and this is my theory : upon removing the clutch, I had seen a groove on the vertical inside case and there was NO thrust washer at all. The whole basket must have been slightly loose, carved a groove, and locked both the washer and the key from that constant loading. Makes sense ?
Why do previous owners do stupid things ?
