Hi Sean,
bummer, possibly the welding was 'hard to do' because the hardened metal of the shaft wouldn't stick to the softiron sprocket, and was as result welded at high temps (lucky your oilseals didn't burn away..). this resulted (in combination with fast cooling?) with a temp-crack in the shaft, waiting to open at some tension.
was a fresh nut or new threat no option? now you have to replace the shaft to get it perfect.
less perfect includes removing the shaft from the motor, welding it carefully, remove excesive welding rims, try to harden it again and putting it in again.
luckily the sell spare shafts:) don't know what type you need.
