18412Pinon Replacement on RL 1000
- Oct 22, 2012I posted last week about this issue and need some advice on this problem.
The pinon appears to be white which I think is the older material. The replacement is black which to my understanding, is a lot tougher.
The transmission gears are black and show little signs of wear, that is the teeth aren't chewed up.
--With the transmission looking good, I'm thinking that doesn't need replacing, only the pinon gear.
--Since the pinons are sold in pairs, should I replace both? The one on the left looks in good shape.
--Final question. I assume that the transmission in front of the motor has to be removed to get to the bottom screw which looks like a torx head?
I know I'll have to find a machine shop to pull and replace the pinon.
