Question Hacker Motor Problem

ll

I have a sailplane with a Hacker B20 18L motor with a 4:1 gear box. I managed to bend the prop shaft today.

I am looking for information on replacing the shaft or gearbox.

I have not been able to locate a supplier on the web that could provide the gearbox or shaft.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
I have never seen just the parts for the gearbox, but NeuMotors many have the box.

Looking for the Maxon P16

Have you tried the USA Hacker Motor distributor in Kansas? I purchased several motor shafts from them recently. The website is https://hackermotorusa.com/ If your browser is like mine, it may give a security certificate error message when you try to open the tab. Should that make you nervous, use their telephone number, (913) 214-6995.
