HI all,

Since new replacement gears for the Bosch B245RS108 Generators that are used on R16 R17 and twin carb models of R11 and R12, as well as other pre-war twins, I am forced to have them made. I have contracted a premier precision gear maker to duplicate a good set that I removed from one of the two units that I have.

The issue is that this gear manufacturer doesn't want to make just 2 sets, so he's making 10 sets.

Between myself and a couple of friends that can use them I have 3 or 4 sets spoken for -

I'm putting the word out to owners of R17 R16 etc.. that this may be the only opportunity for you get get a fresh, perfect new set of gears for your generator.

These gears are unique to this unit and are made of un-obtainium.

Contact me if you are interested in one or more sets - due to the high cost of making them, each set is $450 plus shipping.

Gears in hand

I now have the completed gears in hand. They are awesome - If you have an R16 R17 R12 or R11 with twin carbs, and the B245RS108 Generator - you might want to consider having an extra set of generator gears for when yours wear out - they've got to be nearly 80 years old now! 1 set of precision gears is $500 which covers my cost and time. Cheers.

Jeff
