As long as it's only the splined shaft that's bad, you could just install a plug on timing cover hole for wp. I'd use something that will push into the hole, but not hit the splined shaft of wp drive. Then epoxy or silicon around the plug.
If it's the large gear that meshes with the cam gear that's broken, that opens up a can of worms. You would have to remove timing cover, cam gear & timing chain. You would have to remove wp drive assembly.
I would chuck splined shaft into a drill. With drill turning assembly like a lath, use a grinder to grind down the large gear so it no longer meshes with cam gear. Be sure to cover bearing so it doesn't get metal fragments in it. Inspect cam gear for damage caused by wp drive gear.
Or you could put another wp drive assembly along with a new timing set. You probably could use a new timing set anyway.
