Recommendation for Bonfiglioli gearbox rebuild in New Zealand
Mike Longcor (SV Trilogy)
Can any owners recommend a good place to get the Bonfiglioli gearboxes rebuilt in New Zealand? Has anyone used the Bonfiglioli Transmission place in Auckland?
I would like to have them stripped down and cleaned, zercs added, repainted, and rebuilt. Ideally it would be a shop that's familiar with them and has perhaps done the job successfully before. The brass worm gear on our main outhaul has been stripped by the stainless worm drive. The main furler works fine but is overdue for some service.

Not sure if Total Marine can complete your request but they made new gears for my BT. Walk over and ask Cam if he can cut new gears...
However, these Bonfiglioli are not expensive and, AFAIK, they are still available.
