That rear wheel should not rotate as far as you were saying 180. At most maybe 5 or six inches with extreme wear in the drive chain. My thought is either a spline connection or the gear going into the final drive because these are common failure points. The only good way to lubricate them is by taking apart and hand packing. Many believe grease going into the zirk fitting lubes it but it will not. As mentioned download the manual from the web site on the final drive it will help you identify exactly what the problem is. If you find the gear or spline failed you really need to clean all of the assembly out. I have found the high pressure car wash sprayers work well and dry it with hair dryer. If you identify the actual final drive just get one off Ebay.
To fix the problem one should not make more assumptions than the minimum needed.
