Noticed worm gear was worn out, ordered the parts, it came very next day. On YouTube instructions were very easy to follow. Important point to remember,I washed the parts in water with chlorine in it. Retaking ring was tough to take out, as I did not have parrot beak plier, could not find it at Home Depot or Lows. Putting the retaining ring I used circular nut driver, to press it on the shaft to slide down by hammering it. While assembling follow the instruction step by step from the you tube. Machine works smoothly. Performing well. Thanks to part select, excellent web page, efficient delivery. I would recommend them to all.
