Ya, an update for you all.
I called both AeroTech of Louisville and Niagara Airparts. Mine was the AeroTech part. Both told me of multiple instances of this pinion gear cracking. The failures occur with both the Key and Pull Cessna starters. At this point, if your using the Cessna Starter you may really want to switch to the SkyTech. Supposedly the SkyTech has a key that breaks and the key protects from the gear failing (the key breaks first).
Had I known this, there is no way I'd have been running a Cessna Starter!
