Re: Kanzaki KBW10 gearbox

I'm sorry I can't help you locate another KBW10 but I have to ask why you can't repair your existing one?

The part that has failed in my gearbox is no longer available.

I recently saw new ones advertised for $1,495 but can't remember where. Check with Mr. Google

Thatís pretty funny. Iíll happily pay anyone $1000 to provide me with the link for a successful purchase of a brand new $1,495 KBW10 gearbox that fits my PSC 34.

Leprechauns, mate.

Fair enough reason.

FWIW, in Oz, getting a used KBW10 wouldn't be too hard although you might have to wait a couple of weeks for one to turn up but I have no idea what the used market is like in the USA.

If you get stuck, I feel confident your old one can be repaired. Most of the parts should be available at bearing supplies shops but if it is something else, a good machinist can probably make it. If you have to go down that path, start a thread on CF, post some pictures and see what assistance is available here!

In the meanwhile, I hope you find a complete box ready to bolt on.

I had mine rebuilt by Joel Stewart in Green Cove Springs, Fl and it works perfect, after 4,000nm plus

Has the repairer tried to source the part outside of the USA? In another recent gearbox post, Yanmar (USA) stated a part had to be made to order but I found it quite easily in Oz with one phone call!

Do you have the part number of the item?
