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.

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.
