    Give a few minutes to observe my machine and determine if there is an easier way to remove the upper gear...

    Don't worry, be happy...

    OK, no need to remove anything from the top except the damaged gear. With the upper and front covers removed, turn the hand wheel until you see the screw holding the damaged black gear. Insert a flat screwdriver in the "first lever window" so you can reach the screw. Loosen the screw and remind that you will not be able to pull the gear up but instead pull the shaft down a few inches so the gear remains alone on top. Remove it and replace it with the new one.

    Let me know any other difficulties with this or the next steps. Make sure you have a hot cocoa cup or any other delightful treat available in case you start feeling discouraged.

    Enjoy a great day!

    Well, I got the set screw loosened in the old gear, but I'm unable to remove the shaft. It absolutely refuses to pull out. My machine is not lined up like yours. When I insert the screwdriver, I have to slant it down to get to the set screw thus using only one side of the screwdriver blade. I'm seriously wondering if I can put new gear in IF and WHEN I do get it removed.

    Hi MissEva, I also had to slant down the screwdriver a little bit, could you send me some pictures? About the shaft, is it too hard to pull down or are you having other type of trouble?

    It may be stuck after 40 years sitting there so remove the set screw and hit the shaft to slide it down.

    Well I got the shaft to move, got the gear in and I'm in the process of timing. It's really hard. It's almost my bedtime and I get up at 5 am so I'll try it again tomorrow after work. I need to find a hex driver. I have 6 and they are either too large or too small. I had to use the tips of a needlenose plier. Thanks so very much for your help. Couldn't have done it without you.

    belem - Praise the Lord! She sews!!!!! Got it all back together and I only had one small washer extra. Can't for the life of me figure out where it went. BUT SHE SEWS!!!! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. Only thing - it makes a lot more noise than my other machines when it runs - in the bobbin area. Not like it's hitting something - just rattles if that's a good word to use. I can move the needle left - center - right and zig zag. It will make some one a nice machine. Now I just have to wait for the Lord to show me who needs it.
