We finished tearing down the broken drive today and found the cause to be a broken (into 4 pieces) Pinion gear.
Unfortunately, when it broke, it also damaged the splines on the vertical mainshaft.
This is where the trouble starts. Being as this is a B-Max 2" shorty, I can't just go get a shaft anywhere. I called the West coast guy for these and he is saying that there aren't any,, as in NONE availible. I tried to call the Bravo Shop (place that makes the Bmax drives) and they aren't answering their phones or emails.
With all this being said, Its looking like the only course of action if going to be for me to have some machined. I know there are a few people that are on here do machining. Any suggestions or takers?
