Replacing Stripped Gears in handles of AN/SRR-13A receivers.
|Stripped Handle Gear|
Original shaft is staked to the handle.
The stake was drilled out.
The gear was stamped with "Boston G-171".
An e-mail to Boston Gears revealed
that the spur gear is still manufactured.
My local Boston gear dealer was able
to provide them at $12.45 each.
|The shaft was drilled 3/8 of an inch deep
with a #43 drill bit and tapped with a 4-40 thread.
|Handle gear with mate.
