I called Durst and they directed me to a vendor for them and they are trying to locate the gear for me The date on the gearbox was stamped 11-77 So it may be hard to find beings its 35 years old Crossing my fingers on this one Maybe Durst will make a complimentary one beings their box lasted so long LOL Wishful thinking Thanks for all the input Guys especially you Ducky

Maybe they will get the idea that there is still a small market for these!

At first I thought about suggesting a third alternative of having a good welder go at it and then grind the teeth back into shape. Then you'd have to have it hardened.

I wonder if you could find just the gear itself, cut the old gear off, and have the new one welded to the shaft

Larry at Moss Brothers in Dallas Center Iowa has the gear and box and is working with a Durst representative and they are searching for the gear shaft assembly He will be calling when he has it back together to let me know what they came up with and of course the bill for his services Im sure if he locates it there will be others out there looking for the same parts

Hope it doesn't hurt your wallet too bad.
