That bolt doesn't look like it belongs. If the sprockets don't line up, but are square to each other, the the shaft has either moved sideways, which suggests bearing or bushing, or the sprocket is in the wrong place on the shaft is unlikely if it is the correct sprocket. Your pics don't show the whole picture though, so it's hard to be more specific since I can't see all the parts. Try and post more showing shaft ends, any spacers, any angles on shafts indicating that they may not be running square to each other. Kind of need the full monty to attempt remote diagnosis.
Work fascinates me.
