Default Tamiya Nissan King Cab gear?

Does anybody know were I can get a replacement counter gear for a Tamiya Nissan King Cab?



My sister's husband replaced the motor in his old truck and did not know enough to check the gear mesh before running it.....

If he still has the owner's manual, then you can take the part # and go to TamiyaUSA.com and run a search to see if the part is still available.

Or hit the eBay.

If no owner's manual is available, go to www.tamiyaclub.com and register. They got an online manual archive that might have the manual for this kit.

Good luck!

I had checked Ebay before I posted the thread and while I did manage to find a cover for the tranny that has been about it.
TamiyaUSA.com has also been an exercise in futility.
Will see what the manual sez as soon as they send me a password for Tamiyaclub.

I may just end up haxoring an associated spur gear onto it.

I wonder if that's the issue to begin with.. Tamiya uses metric gear.. that pinion in the pic doesn't look quite right.. (I am just guessing, though..) So I wonder if that's one of the causes that the spur got eaten...

Good luck!

No, I found the culprit last night when I tore the rear end apart.
The shaft that holds the counter gear in place is secured to the transmission with a single screw.

For the same reason you are not able to post an intelligent reply to a thread?



Not exactly just a spur gear is it?

it's a spur an an idler smushed together. They are not one solid gear, so i would refer to them as two seperate ones. I geuss it would be pretty hard to have a slipper on that car,

It is one solid gear. If you like we could all be nitty gritty about all your posts..........there certainly is a lot to be corrected in those.

The proper term is actually compound gear but we all understood what you meant. I think your best bet is "haxoring an associated spur gear onto it," or any other 48p gear really.

yeah, sorry,i didn't mean to sound like i was criticizing you.

If you can fit maybe a whole input shaft and a slipper that would be nice too, but it probably won't fit since the gears are so close together.

That gear is ALMOST like the one in the TA01/02. The teeth are the same, but the inner gear is longer, and there is a bevel on the otherside. You could cut some off the inner one, but I dunno what to do about the bearing hole.

Here ya go:
