Perhaps the bolt got loose, it uses a special tabbed lock washer, with a loose bolt the Drive Head could break. Lots of load on the Bendix from the starter motor.

Thanks for adding the drawing. It is the stop Nut that broke off. Part of the screw shaft left in the stop nut. screws were still in place and secured by the washers Head spring screw end piece broken off, key damaged.
