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.

Excellent purchase July 6, 2017
Reviewer: Stephen Conover from Grapevine, TX United States  
Easy to install if you follow the directions and I feel more comfortable with the steel first gears.  I did install a break reduction module as well!

As a machine shop owner/supervisor I can appreciate a nice machined part when I see one. One things for sure it's the last first gear you will ever buy!

Good quality first gear! March 1, 2017
Reviewer: Dmitriy G from Staten Island , NY United States  
This item was not plug and play, but I believe it was specified in the description. Just had to sand down the shaft a bit, fits nice and snug. Again great service and fast shipping by MlToys... will definitely recommend.

Good product very good service August 23, 2016
Reviewer: Brian from Big Bend, WI United States  
This gear seems well made and you get what you are paying for.  I just wish the instructions were a little better.  However the customer support I received was very good. I s not a couple emails and got an answer back very quick.
