What exactly is wrong with the reeves drive? Did one of the pulley sides break or is it something else? Certainly wouldn t anchor it though.

Hi Brad,
The right side spindle pulley is worn on the shaft that the shifting lever bracket goes over. It’s lose on the shaft due to a bad bearing inside the shifting lever bracket. Another one of the spindle bearings is bad also. And the teeth on the shaft of the shifting lever is a little buggered too but still works. I called Jet and the guy told me he couldn’t even find any aftermarket vendors either. If those parts are not available as I have a feeling I’m just going to put it to rest I’m afraid.
