I got more disassembling done today, which is good, but also revealed something that was not so good. The gear on the belt pulley is not real good and the input shaft gear on the transmission has a broken tooth. They had quite a bit of play between them as I found out before it was taken apart. These probably are not easy to find. Could they be repaired? I have never heard of gears being repaired. That was a disappointment, but one good thing is both gear covers are in good shape. You can see in the pic that the teeth beside the broken one are pretty sharp.

Hopefully you can match the tooth portion up with an of the shelf gear and have a machine shop adapt the hub. It looks in the picture as though there has been an attempt to repair a tooth about 9 above the missing one.

Contact Dave Shearns regarding the large gear. Also try Biewers. There should be one around.

Getting the gear cover back on is a chore!!

Also you will need to remove that entire input shaft as well. This involves removing the shifter fork mechanism (bolted onto the transmission (between the frame rails)). I would assume the bearings are worn out and or damaged (on the input shaft). The pulley bushings will need replacing as well.

Thanks Bubbles and Halcon. Your comments are very much appreciated. I will be searching for these gears, the throttle shaft tube, and maybe a governor, so if anyone can help please let me know. There is plenty of work to do in the meantime. Thanks to all who have helped so far.

Tonight the engine block was removed and a broken mount was discovered. It looks like it`s been that way for a while. The pistons were removed and on the sides, on the tops where the oil ports come through, they are scored. I figure from lack of oil. The cylinders don`t look real bad but they will be checked out. The rod bearings and crank journals are not bad but will need polished up. It`s been real cold here lately, but this weekend looks like a warming up is coming, so maybe can get a steamer from my work, take everything outside and do some cleaning. Will be looking into the transmission soon.

Don't let the scoring on the piston trunks scare you.
The trunk is only a guide.
It's what's at and above the rings that really tells the story.
Should you wind up having the block sleeved you can make that scoring go away.
Are oil rings for bottom ring grooves part of the plan?.......

Craig, I know you have told others about that bottom ring groove, something about drilling holes for a cleaner running engine? Explain if you would please.

Talking Re: Rumely Oil Pull L 15-25 Parts and Advice Wanted

Oil rings, technically scrapers, provide a means to scrape off oil before it gets it the top rings where it is sucked past on the intake strokes and contributes to what a certain Canadian refers to as an "Oil Puke"........
And he's right especially when they are not working and just puttering around with no load.
6-8 5/32" equally spaced holes drilled in the bottom of the oil ring groove provide a path for the oil to get back to the crankcase rather than the combustion chamber.
I know I've ragged on this for ages........ ........and the chances are pretty good I will again........

Heed Bubble's advise about the 2-3 pounds pressure.
Remember that 2-3 pounds per square inch results in a great deal of force inside the panels.......
For whatever it's worth, last time I tested sheets I sprang for a $20 kiddie pool, filled it with water, and submerged the sheets while putting a couple of pounds of air in them. I've had better luck submerging sheets than using soap & water.

Sounds good Jon. I have one that I give the dogs a bath in.
