Yeah... It looks to me like the housings are starting to separate? Maybe from loose bolts? That could have caused the break.

I hate to say this... but I'd almost guarantee the original owner had something happen to it, had it repaired, or otherwise had a good reason to unload the tractor... and now you know why. But I could be wrong.

A crack in any housing is bad. Either it was misused or abused or a flaw in the engineering or casting caused this issue. I’m leaning towards a failure of some kind or a flaw. With the amount of 1 series out there working extremely well, I seriously doubt this is an engineering fault. It’s fixable. No question. Wether or not the OP wants to or not is the debate.
