I have a friend in Canada who has ask for my help wit a model i/c engine problem. He has a K&B OUTBOARD engine,of 1950s vintage.that has a mashed bevel gear in its drive train.The design is much the same as a full size outboard- double bevel gears top and bottom of the leg. The size of these are about 5mm diameter.

Does anyone know of a source of small bevel gears. I imagine the clock makers among us must use such a thing although they probably make their own.

Don't know personally but my mate Google found loads of "small bevel gears", might be dome in there that are suitable.

Little knowledge of the specific problem but I do remember K&B were of American manufacture. As such I doubt the gears will be of metric origin but more likely Imperial pitch.
