'87 190E rotor problem

My '87 190E has fallen and I am not sure I can get it back up.

I traced the sudden problem to the distributor cap and rotor. Knowing I should have replaced them some time ago I bought new ones and put them in. No joy. A little further looking and I realized that the rotor was not being spun by the motor. Pulled the distributor and stuck my finger in to find the gear that drives the rotor is freewheeling.

What is the probable cause, damage, and cost?
