There's a problem..... Shearing the Key is a sign of some other issues. Bored 30 over shouldn't be a big deal, Piston installed right? (probably wouldn't run if it was in backward)..... Check that key again,... Timing issues would cause that for sure,..... You didn't install one of those offset, Advanced keys did you?
When you pull the flywheel to check it out, look and see if there are slots for mounting the stator plate. It could be an adjustable one,.... it might cause problems if it's adjusted wrong..... a lot of little picky items to go back and check..... but shearing that key would bother me a lot.... like there's something way loose.... like the flywheel....
