Gearbox Rebuilt help
Posted January 05, 2008 - 07:38 PM
One thing that stood out for me were three or four washers that sit on the gear shaft (both pinion and wheel shafts) between the gears. They're quoted as around the $13 - $14 mark each and there are four or five of them.
I know i'm probably penny pinching, but if I can save some money here and there I will.
For anyone who's torn down their gearbox, did you replace these? Is it necessary? I've had a look at them and they don't look worn.
They're not normal washers, they're got teeth on the inside that allow them to fit on the shaft.

Msgbean, exactly my thoughts. Looking through the parts list they gave me and then looking at the manual, not only are there things that I probably don't need to replace, but there are seals and o-rings that haven't even been put on the list.
