    Hello, I'm trying to find the fiber type gear for the drive
    in my beloved Clark FM-13.
    I've had this machine about 25 years and would consider
    buying a new one if they were still made.
    I know these parts were available several years ago, but
    now I can't seem to find a source.
    Thank you
    Gus

    Hey there Mike,
    Thanks for the reply.
    The gear that I need is shown as
    #65 "gear" on the link you sent me
    (thanks also).
    I called it a fiber gear because of the material it's made of.

    Understood. I have a friend that got manufactured metal gears for the pop up camaro headlights because the “plastic” ones stripped out. He turned it into a business shipping them throughout US. Also Jack King has 3D printers for his products(DustRam) though the material used is probably different so the specs would need to be verified for another company to produce if the part has been discontinued.

    If you call Ivie let me know if the part is available, I haven’t ordered from them I think and if they have good customer service for repairing equipment I definitely need cleaning equipment parts.

    Yes, I'll be calling IVIE in the morning.
    I don't know the reason they chose that material. I'm sure it Is quieter, maybe it is also sacrafiicial? Though I was not loading it very much.
    Anyway, thanks again and I'll let you know what happens.
    Bill
