Hi Don.Hard to say why it broke into 3 pieces. Most likely fatigue. They make that shim/washer out of soft material. There really isn't much torque or load applied in that area.

If you can find a replacement shim just install it and forget about it for about another 2ooK miles. I have rebuilt MANY of these units and wouldn't be concerned at all.If you have further questions just holler.Larry
