No idea till I pull the third. I have a hunch what failed (can't imagine how) is the solid spacer I used shattered letting the pinion float in and thus blowing the bearing. Just a hunch as I have thought hard about this since it happened. No "pop" when it broke just crunching sounds that turned into binding crunching sounds.
