  • Need a South Bend thirteen expert

    Putting the apron back together after cleaning/painting/restoration, need a question answered. It has an "oil slinger gear" supposedly on the shaft that goes between the lead screw and the drive mechanisms. It is about .050 thick with gears on the outer edge. I have assembled it to the shaft, and it seems to fit in a slot between the bearing surface in the body and the gear that drives the selector shaft. At that position, nothing drives it, it just fits in that groove. Can this be right? Seems to me if they took the time to machine gears in the outer edge they should mesh with something...Pete

    It's been a few years since I have had mine apart. Go here and read. http://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb...fo-etc-129769/

      That's right. It just rotates slowly via friction against the outside of the clutch housing, and drags oil up from the reservoir. Similar to oiler rings in other plane bearing equipment like old lineshafts and some old lathe spindle bearings.
