IIRC, that is one of the cogs for the Hi-low range shift. It meshes with that sliding collar. I wouldn't worry about it, I think you'll be fine, there are plenty of other teeth for transferring the torque. But, I'm curious to see what others will say.

Yes, that bearing needs to go in a bit more, there shouldn't be any "shoulder" visible.

I'm gonna guess that it snapped off while pressing a bearing on or off. There can be "high spots" on that cog that can create a stress point, and if you crank on the press at just the right angle and force, it could snap the entire tooth off. I've seen them chip, but never snap the whole tooth.

I broke a tooth off like that, too. Runs fine 4K later. Needle bearing in end of output shaft should be a little deeper.
