Sorry you had to find out the hard way about the lack of grease on kit engines. This is why we suggest tearing down and checking things before running a engine. in and out motion could just be crankshaft movement in the bearings, if its a small amount that's OK. When you replace the gear check the crankshaft for wobble, I hope you had a bad gear or the lack of grease was the problem and not a bent crank. Looking at the wear on the gear you probably have wear on the clutch gear as well.
Your results may not be the same,Greg
