That's going to be the main problem, trying to keep the motor from turning when trying to unscrew the screw. The gear is already damaged so hold the gear with channel lock pliers to try and hold it steady when unscrewing the screw.

Also, take a close look at the large gear also, in your first picture it appears the teeth may be damaged at the spot where the broken gear tried to mess with the larger gear.

You don't have to worry about the timing, the large gear is keyed to the ice rake and can only be put on one way. It doesn't matter where the rake is pointed when you put it back together, it will just be in the middle of a cycle and will start and run thru the reminder of the cycle when you plug it back in.
