Hi Chris,

I only found these 2 pinion gears and they both have 17 balls on each side.

Hi Mates,

Randy, Glad I could give you a chuckle - I'm pretty certain that I'm not the only one who has chased those little things around. I can still hear one occasionally when I vacuum the reel room :sCh_taz:

Dries, those are the only two I have as well - that still have 17 balls on each side.

Regards,
Chris

Hello Mates

Just for information, photo KIT which was sold from November 1978 to replace the old main gear and pinion by new.
