BGB Repair or Replace??

Recommended Posts

Paul, the gears are the expensive part. I think they are $50-$60 each. I bought new seals and needle bearings for my B-10 gearbox, that was about $30. I think everything is still available.

Paul, The last one that I did, (about a year ago) gears were $65 a piece and input shaft was about $65. By the time that I got it back together I had about $230 in it[:0] Good for another 40 years:D

Don't know if this will swap in or not, but maybe lots of parts for the $$$: http://cgi.ebay.com/Homelite-T16-Bevel-Gearbox-Simplicity-transmission_W0QQitemZ7745786781QQcategoryZ82242QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Hi, I personally am not a big used person. I personally would put new parts in it and be assured that it is FIXED for a significant time. If you buy something used and it may only be a couple of months away from what you have now. I am not saying buying used is bad, It is just my personal philosophy. If the tranny went out of my truck, I would spend 1000 to 1500 to put in a rebuilt or rebuild it rather than 300 or 400 on a used one and maybe be doing the same thing in 6 months. We don't put used parts in our used tractors. If this was one of our used tractors we would put whatever new parts in it needed and sell it explaining it had $300 worth of work in the BGB. We FIX what is bad in our used stuff and sell them with a warranty. Granted we want top dollar for our used equipment, but we feel it is worth it. My philosophy is fix it RIGHT ONCE and FORGET IT.

Paul last one I repaired came to about $125 for seals, bearings, input shaft and shipping for the parts. I had spare set of gears from another bgb. Can't tell from the photo what condition the gears are in. If they need replacing then they will the most exspensive part of the job. If you overhaul it you will know what's been done. Be careful on swapping bgb's as I believe the newer ones used different diameter shafts, it's not that they wouldn't work but the parts and pieces won't swap between the two I could be wrong about this but I think the change happened about the same time running boards were added. In any case good luck!

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
