I have two Model E 30, 750 watts. Bolth crankshaft gears are striped. The camshaft has pot metal bearings and with age it swells up and locks the cam up like you welded it. Some one decides to put a bar in the flywheel and make it turn over, it does, but the camshaft doesn't turn. If any one finds a source for those gears let me know.

I DO NOT have the parts you need, but have you done a search for a machine shop that might be able to build the gears out of something other than the O.E.M. material. You might post at www.practicalmachinist.com to find someone to make you helix gear.
