Heres the phosphor bronze gear set,the upper gear is original brass,2 lower ones are the bronze.
Ill let you know once i recieve them.ill run em hard.
My stock gears are worn on only 3 runs,ill test the bronze gears on 3 runs then inspect.if they are good...maybe a endurance run,in my pool hooked to 12 volt power supply,motor stationary.

Build time will be slow,the guy works out of his shop,alone at his own free time.he
s not really doing it for profit....for $30 a set....id be happy with a stock set for that price.ive searched years for this.google has a post of a guy that made a few hardened copper sets....but thats about it.
I asked my guy how many sets can he produce,stated i had lots of intrested buyers.his response was,just make the order,ill try to keep up with ya the best i can.

But before anyone else sends money....let me be sure this is legit,and the gears are real.
I been in contact with this guy for mths now,hes been slowly tooling up his mill,and supplies to do this favor for me.he is also a fan of the ep-1,but relizes the gears were its downfall.it seems to be the most scale outboard around....but without replacement gears,its just a dust collector.

I went to some auto suppliers here in Michigan to see about getting a small run and they laughed at me! I would have to make 10,000 of them to get the price down to $50.00 a pair. $30.00 is a bargain!!!

Awesome....glad to see theres a market for it....small market...but its a start.
Prototype will be cheap at $30 a set,once they pass the test and start selling....price will rise.
$30 is the stock cost,not charging machine cost.
