    Hello,

    I would like to ask you a question about a music box wheel.

    The wheel I´m looking for is a plastic wheel of the musical box gobernor.

    You can see the wheel and the musical box in the pictures.


    I think is not dificult to find that kind of cuckoo clocks repair parts, but I don´t find this wheel.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Best regards,
    Miguel

    They are no longer available as a replacement part. In fact there are very few things available for these type MBs. All you can do is to order one, or more, of the governor platforms and hope that you can use the replacement governor, in whole or in part, to repair what you have.

    I think Timesavers' 14496 might be the very governor you're looking for.

    You can rebuild these. The only thing is that it's hard to bend the tabs out to bush and bend them back. Getting the leave pinions and gears alined so the power transfer is correct is the most difficult. But it can be done. Most of the time you have to do this because as said, there isn't a replacement for these. One whole music platform with everything is about 90.00. 20 years ago you could buy then for 25.00 or less.

    If the problem with yours is that it's split, I have fixed them by taking them off their arbor, putting a brass sleeve around the non toothed part, and then pressing back on.
