All 3 locked up and sheared the shaft off.

Lovely.  That does smack of a lack of lubrication.  Who did the pumps come from if you care to say?  I got my mine from Blue Chip.  Mid level rebuild.

Reading timelines and the vp44 problems, did the change to the cp3 remove the problem or did the change to a different style remove them?

Different type of injection systems, different kinds of problems.

VP44 - electronically controlled mechanical distributor pump;  more pump problems, injectors are usually pretty reliable.

CP3 - high pressure common rail system;  more reliable pump as far as I know, injectors tend to be more problematic and they are expensive.  More $$ to replace pump and injectors with the CP3 I’m pretty sure.
