Description
 
The First Gear is the weakest link in a Power Wheels 7R Gearcase. This is the solution. We designed this gear with a leading American gear manufacturing company to be so strong we offer a Lifetime Warranty* on it. The gear is made from one solid piece of stock, heat treated, and has holes to cut weight. The steel ball bearings reduce friction, heat, and resistance making for the most efficient gear possible.

To install this gear you will have to sand the black finish off of the shaft that it spins on. Do not sand the black finish off of the portion of the shaft that installs into the gearbox housing. Clean the grease off the first gear shaft, then mark the base of the first gear shaft. Pull it out and put the portion of the shaft that was stuck in the gearbox into a drill. Spin the shaft on 120ish sandpaper, stopping every few seconds to test fit a bearing. The bearing must slide smoothly all the way to the mark you made.

When using 775 motors you must use the 775 To 7R Mounting Kit linked on this page.

All motors must use hardened steel pinion gears, not just metal ones. For 775 motors use the Robinson Racing 18XX series. For 550 motors use the Robinson Racing 17XX series.

If you are replacing a stripped nylon first gear you will need to replace the grease too as it is contaminated with plastic fragments.

Will NOT work with stock Power Wheels motors... it will tear up their pinion gears. Pinion gears must be made of hardened steel.

*See our Warranty page for details.

Perfect little Ball Bearings. October 31, 2018
Reviewer: Sawyer from Battery Warehouse VA  
These were exactly the correct size to make the system work and run flawlessly. We had been having a lot of gears burn out with the increased motor power output. These along with the few others I purchased did exactly what they needed to.

Good product September 26, 2018
Reviewer: hardware hacker from United States  
Had no problems with these gears other than the fact that when shipped, the 775 to 7R mounting kit, the first gears and all of the bearings and screws that I ordered were all just thrown into a single bag when shipped.  I would have preferred that they were at least in individual bags to prevent the parts from banging around against each other during shipment.

Good gear September 10, 2018
Reviewer: DK from RI  
It was pretty easy to open the gearbox and replace the first gear. Quality and fit is very good and it spins nicely with the ball bearings.
