Briggs 6:1 gearbox broke - need advice

Obviously the big outer gear is damaged. I have two questions-

1. Do you think the crankshaft needs to be replaced too? I canít tell if that gear is worn/damaged also. Maybe it is hardened and came out okay?

2. What would cause this? Is there something else I need to give attention to so this doesnít happen to the replacement gear?

Im thinking if the face of the teeth on the little gear are okay then I might be fine replacing just the big gear and hope for the best?
