Hi Ted (latheman) I did end up finding two damaged gears in my 9" model A gearbox the 32 tooth and 16 tooth compound gear with the thicker 16 tooth small gear that goes on the central shaft (page 31 in rebuild guide) and the 32 tooth gear on the tumbler are bent didn't see it before. Could I buy these two gears from you? Do I contact you off group or how does it work? Thanks in advance
Thanks Ted would you have those gears if I need them?
The tumbler shaft should rotate freely. You probably have a bad spot in your tumbler idler gear(or dirt/chip in a tooth or two)
