there is a pin in the gear, drive it out and push gear off.

there is a thread on here somewhere, in regards to this fix, as the new metal gears are very expensive, i attempted to adapt a off shelf gear from a local co. and couldnl’t get the correct size, gearing, angle ect.

so i opted to move the belt and gearing up on top of stand, see the thread if you can find, i’ll try, but am terrible with this kinda stuff.
anyway, it makes the unit functional, just have to address height issue with either vice grips or channel locks, been using mine like this for a year or so, little tedious at times, but it works.

i just get pizzed off at the feed belt not staying centered, have to adjust regularly
good luck
