Recommended Posts

What would the cost be to rebuild a BGB if all the wearable parts were replaced? anyone done one? are all the parts still available? I saw there are threads about doing a rebuild but did look to seee how tuff this would be. Thanks

The beveled gears are pricey,the bearing are reasonable. If the gears aren't chipped or worn badly I wouldn't worry about replacing them. The needle bearing in the front I replace when ever I take the box loose from the tractor. It's cheap and easy to replace. The other bearings are running in gear oil and unless it's been run low on oil they usually last for ever. When you assemble the tractor make sure the yoke on the front is good and tight,if they come loose they can beat a gear box to death.

Dan - I priced out what I felt I needed to re-do the BGB on my Big Ten. I plugged part numbers from the diagram into Jackssmallengines.com. Everything is still available including the gears and shafts, but they are expensive. I assumed, as Jim stated, that the gears were still ok. I also assumed that a bad front needle bearing has messed up the driving shaft (not the driven cross shaft). Including the shaft, two ball bearings, two needle bearings, seals, shims, and new gasket, the total came to about $114.00. If the shaft is good, it would be only about $55.00, as the shaft was the most expensive parts. I intend to pull mine apart in the next couple of weeks and enjoy the experience of rebuilding my first BGB sm01 Glen
