I have been really lazy about posting this but I beileve this was from late last year early this year when I was replacing my lower oil pan and things went further south...

Not sure what actually caused this but I'm glad I was looking around. It's hard to see in the bottom image but there was a visible crack 180* from the missing section.

I machined that down since I deleted the balance shaft.

Did you have the balance shaft and chain on at the time of finding this? Could be a seizing balance shaft?

No balance shaft, that's the main chain section with the crank, not the bs chain section.

I was going to do the same thing and machine that part of the gear off but had better things to do.
