Very happy to find that the new gear housing was metal, not plastic. The whole problem was poor design of plastic to hold metal gears. Removed housing held down by four screws, removed two gears that were damaged. Retaining ring was difficult to remove from retaining slot. New gears replaced the old ones, new retaining ring put in place, new grease packed into all gearing, new stronger metal housing put in place and the Kitchenaid industrial mixer is better than new. Very happy with the parts I purchased.
