So, I have SHS 18:1 gears… wondering if I can use the original cast pinion on them from the Wells M401 upgrade kit, or will I need a shs pinion also?
The original pinion will fine as long as it’s not damaged
Just thought the pinion being cast metal, and shs being steel ( correct me if I’m wrong ) wouldn’t go well for some stupid reason. I’m over thinking aren’t I.
Even though they’re cast they’re still strong little buggers
@Bandit75 is correct they are tough.
Cast pinions are cast steel not pressed powder metal like some of the rubbish gear sets
Well no work tomorrow… time to get shimming!!
Also thanks guys your input is greatly appreciated!
manually run the pinion gear over the bevel and see if the mesh is any good plus smooth first. look at the angles as well
