Worn plates - RM-327 & RM-367

Recommended Posts

The plate (4479 & 4480) and shaft (4478) for the front mount of my RM-327 are worn out.  Of course they obsolete.  Particularly in regard to the plates, has anyone fabbed up replacements?  They would seem to be relatively easy to make with a CNC plasma, laser or water jet.  I'm assuming all OEM parts have a lot of wear so I wonder  if there are old & good replacements around.

      1967 867 wheel horse tractor for sale. I'm willing to seperate attachments but I'd prefer to  sell all as one.
      Tractor runs great, no smoke, great compression and transmission shifts like it should. Tractor doesnt need a thing, it's ready to work or add to a collection.

      RM-367 mower deck, new shaft bearings, new wh matched belts.
      Short frame snow/dozer blade, great shape, everything works.
      ST- 327 Snow thrower, works great, and in pretty good shape, it was hardly used.

      In the process of replacing the spindle bearings on my RM-367 mower deck, I got to thinking about the gears that drive 'em.  As you can see in the image, the teeth are well worn, but only where they mesh with the cross-shafts teeth.
      I'm wondering if there's any point in turning the gears over to engage the un-worn teeth.  But the cross-shaft gears have also worn in similar to the teeth on the spindle gears.
      I'd appreciate anyone's opinion on the advisability of turning the gears over.
      I'm neither a collector nor a restorer, but am the original owner of my 1967 Model 857 tractor.  It just might be the best made piece of equipment that I've ever owned.  Solidly built.  The Kohler engine has been ultra-reliable.  I've never even had the head off it.  Points, plug, carb cleaned, air filter replacement - that's about all I've ever done, yet it starts at one turn of the ignition switch.
      In addition to mowing, I've also got a snow blower and mid-mounted grader blade, and a home-made trailer hitch for dragging my wood splitter around.
      Thanks all.
      (BTW it looks like Toro wants $116/each for these gears.  Not in my budget.)
