Sector gear on my 917.255919 has a tooth broke off, Have tried for months to find a replacement. It's a cast iron part and have been told the tooth could be rebuilt with nickle rod. Not the welder I once was so not going to run the chance of totally ruining an otherwise serviceable gear, it hangs a bit and have to shake the wheel but it does engage the next tooth eventually.

Any welders on here that would be willing to tackle the work? Replacing the metal and reshaping a new tooth?

Will pay labor and shipping both ways. I'm transportation limited and nearest shop is 40 miles away so figured I may as well offer the work here.

Of course if someone has a usable replacement that would be great. Have had a couple of responses but they found their part to have the same problem.

His part looks like this. I have also heard it can be repaired by welding. Another option would be getting one off a parts tractor 917.255914 or 917.255919

Nope, but thanks some will fit my 917.254450. I am checking with another member on another forum that I am getting the steering sleeve from to see if the sector is available on his parts machine for Phluphry.

I used to know machinists that could build up cast iron gears with bronze. That's something I've never tried myself. That's probably a skill that has pretty much disappeared. I dealt with a shop that could re-cast iron to fix engine blocks, and various other castings, but it was stupidly expensive.

Your best bet is to search it out on the www and see what you can find, unless you can find a parts machine cheap.

Send me a PM and we'll see if we can help you out. My shop can weld it or braze it depending on what we think will hold up best.

These will work if you drill the rivets out and use your sector won't they?

If you can hang on for a few days. I talked with the other site member that has the parts tractor, He has offered two of the Craftsman parts tractors to me for free, he doesn't have time to take the parts off. I have to go pick them up. 200 mile round trip. I'll see if I can go this weekend. If the sector is good, I'll let you know. What convinced me of the trip is he said one has a sleeve hitch.

I am limiting the use of PB Blaster on this, but I am making progress. As soon as I get the park brake lever free I should be able to yank the columb out. Scored a clutch idler for Hulk II! The steering sector looks good from here.

 

OH, you will want to replace the brass bushing at the bottom of the steering shaft, it is most likely the cause of broken teeth.
