Getting ready to order a new gear sector for the Craftsman 19.5 Turbo Cool no. 917.259573. The teeth on the original are worn in the middle area allowing play in the steering and it appears to be made of Bakelite or some hard plastic. The replacement ones online look to be made of aluminum or cast. Am I right to think they are made of some type of metal and therefore might hold up better? thanks for any info.

Ok I will answer my own question. After pulling the old one out I now realize it is metal also, so I need not worry that the new one is different.

Sorry nobody replied to your post. A lot of us use the what's new to check out new posts and sometimes they get buried pretty quick.

If the gear is cast it would definitely have that plastic look to from the grease coloring the metal over the years. Probably looks like the plastic type gears that are impregnated with lube to be self lubricating.

Glad you did get it figured out and confirmed that it is the same gear. Also welcome to GTtalk.
