Snapper 820-auger shaft

Hello all! Hope fall is treating you well, we all know winter is right around the corner!

Started working on an old snapper 820 a couple of months ago and just got around to putting the finishing touches on it. So, today I went to check the differential fluid and the auger shaft spun out and I'am not 100 percent sure on how to reassemble it. I attached some pictures of what I'am talking about. It looks like the shaft auger should slide over a woodruff key, but I don't see where any would go.

Any advice would help!

Maybe this parts blowup helps? It does look like there is a woodruff key, #15.

I saw this online but it dosen't show an woodruff key in the number 16 worm gear even though it has a spot for in the picture. I don't know if the gear was just worn in before and that was all that was turning the auger or if the key broke years ago.
