Hey Z dog,
Good news that everything looks good and went back together.
Meat is right about the torque idea but no way could I lock the sprocket by myself and use a torque wrench. Not even sure I would have trusted a torque wrench for that application.
I replaced the bolt(pre loctited) and washer and used the 3/8 drive airwrench and just let it hammer.

I wanted the bolt tight after all I read. I don't see how you could break that bolt unless it was defective. To me the whole sprocket mounting system is well built.

The faster it goes the faster it breaks.
And high performance=high maintenance.
