Toro 724 no drive

I have a few year old Toro 724 OE.

No drive -- I checked and adjusted the shift and drive linkages, then went inside for a better look when the basics didn't help.

What I see -- the hex shaft has lateral play so it slips out of its left bearing, then the pinion gear doesn't stay engaged with the large drive gear -- no drive!

I removed the bearing retainers, bearings seem fine, the outside rubber washers a little squished but could that be enough to let the whole shaft move sideways out of its bearing?

Thoughts, suggestions welcome, or lmk if more description (or pictures) needed.

Thanks!
