That should be interesting. Can you give me an idea as to what parts you are looking for?

The nylon gear in the reduction box located on the motor drive output spindle needs a replacement. The original self distruct.

If the part is available fine, but I would consider sending the projector to a service facility. Your help will be sincerely appreciated...John
