I just received a quote from our local Leroy Somers rep for a new main outhaul gearbox for $460. Problem is about a 14 week lead time between production in France, summer vacation, and ocean shipping. What has been the cost and time when purchasing direct from Amel?

Thanks,

Mike

Eric,

The vendor I have been using for seals and bearings is Motion Industries, national distributors of parts for machinery that moves. Distributors throughout the US. While they do channel Leroy Somers parts, our gearbox is not a stock item and they sourced it back as a special order to France. Hence the 14 week lead time. As a side note, they offer the service of rebuilding gearboxes, which would have been an option had I not destroyed the top plate.

I have not run across Spirit in the Upper Chesapeake. We have been on the Sassafras and now Rock Hall, MD for 10 years.

Thanks Mike,

When you have the new gearbox it is a great time to add the grease holes. Do you have an autoprop?

When I am back in NY with Kimberlite I will send you some photos.

If you order the box locally I would have them ship it without grease and you can then have it powder coated.

Eric

While they do channel Leroy Somers parts, our gearbox is not a stock item and they sourced it back as a special order to France. Hence the 14 week lead time.

While they do channel Leroy Somers parts, our gearbox is not a stock item and they sourced it back as a special order to France. Hence the 14 week lead time. As a side note, they offer the service of rebuilding gearboxes, which would have been an option had I not destroyed the top plate.

I have not run across Spirit in the Upper Chesapeake. We have been on the Sassafras and now Rock Hall, MD for 10 years.

Mike Ondra
 

Bill and all,

 

Motion Industries has probably hundreds of locations across the US. My local MI is about 2 miles from my office, so super easy access at my source for seals, bearings, and anything to do with moving parts.

What they wanted to source the gearbox is the info off the nameplate which I provided as this:

 

LEROY SOMER MOTEURS     MADE IN FRANCE

4R4599/002/2014      MVA-60-NJ-M-H-M-_mn-1  (the mn could be min, it’s hard to read)

MATERIEL LUBRHEAVIE (that last word was also very hard to read)

 

(I think the MVA portion tells it all with MVA being the gear box model and 60 being the gear reduction. What the rest of the letters represent I did not research.)

 

Their quote for the gearbox was $462.34. I would pick it up so that price is without tax and shipping. As I said the lead time was 14 weeks as it is a special item from France.

 

To answer Eric’s question. We do have an autoprop, “water-cooled”, ie. no grease. I do have the grease nipple and IP thread Tap to install it. I think that is a good add to this to the gearbox since the horizontal installation of the lip seal is not the best for water exclusion with perhaps the best defense being semi-annual greasing. Reminder - this does not preclude the problem of the seizing and the need to protect the gypsy shaft which sees none of this grease.

 

Since I have sourced this if others are interested in buying a spare, I would be happy to put together a bulk order and distribute to US addresses when they come in. Just let me know ….mdondra at Verizon dot net.

Mike

Do you want to post all of the details? Price? Part Number? Contact information?

I am sure there is more than one person interested.
