Word breaks

Since there were no word breaks in the early NT manuscripts, are there any texts in the New Testament where the placement of word breaks are disputed?

It's possible, but fairly rare. I don't have any specific examples off the top of my head, but one case may involve οἶδα μὲν ... and οἴδαμεν ..., if I recall correctly.

Eph 1.4 at the end, EN AGAPH, does it begin vs 5 or end vs 4? There are others, and I not sure how rare they are.

Ah, good call. That's a textual variant for Romans 7:14.
