Threaded View
I am needing to replace the hook gear set on the above mentioned machine.
Does anyone have any tips, hints, instructions, etc. on the best way to go
about this. I don't want to remove a lot of parts that don't need to be
removed. I have read other places online that this is easy to do, but I
haven't found any specific information as to how to go about it. Any help
will be most appreciated.

Thanks,

Michelle

Is easy. Just look at it. the hook gear is 1 set screw after removing the
bobbin winder actuating parts. The hook drive gear you must loosed the
timing belt pulley and the long feed gear so you can slide the shaft to the
right.

So it's "lefty tighty, righty loosey"?  And, once again Ron
proves his worth to this group.  ;-)

That is correct. An awful lot of inexperienced people force it the wrong way
and break off the screw end of the bobbin winder driver.

That certainly would have included me, were I attempting it.

I always have to stop and think which way Nikkor lenses
screw off the camera body, it's the same non-intuitive way.
What's up with that?

Can't say why a lens would be like that. On machines it is to counter
centrifugal force.. If they screwed on the other way they could loosen with
use.

Also, thanks for the heads up on the reverse direction of the screw.

Have a great day,

Many thanks to Ron for your information about replacing the hook gear set
in my machine. I got it finished and she runs like a dream. It would have
taken me a lot longer and given me a lot more frustration without the
helpful information from Ron.

Have a great day,

Michelle
