  • WTB Bevel Gear for Dearborn Planter 12-87
  • I need to replace a bevel gear on my Dearborn 12-87 Two-Row Planter. It is missing a tooth. I believe it would be common to any of the early Dearborn planters 12-87,88,89 etc. The Planter Master Parts book lists the part number as #129232. Hereís a photo. Thanks for any assistance.

  • Hi Rick.
    If you can not find a replacement gear you should be able to fix that one.
    Someone who is good at brazing could do it.
    It's just a slow turning gear so balance and concentricity would not be critical. You could build up the tooth with braze then just shape the tooth by hand with a grinder. It would last for looong time.

  • Hi Jerry,
    Scott PA has a replacement gear, so will go with it for now. However I will take your suggestion and see if I canít repair the broken gear as well. Canít hurt to have a spare. Thanks for your input - much obliged.
