Is it just the A &B Gears included? What about the C and D? I have significant wear on my C & D and I have bought the 3D printed set, however these look much better and if you have a full set, I will use these.

Cheers


Its not normal to have any wear on C & D, there's no load/stress on them at all. I've seen the pot gear crack but never actually break, these should actually be fine 3D printed unlike A & B.

That said I was planning on doing C & D but I will see how these go, there is an investment in these to the cost of a new car and going on current reception I'm not sure about doing the other gears now or the dash plastic which already has a mould made and is off for samples running off.



Thanks for the reply. I think it's great that you have put these together and they clearly look quality made. However, the cost might be issue for some when compared to the 3D gears (it's just opinions on value). For me, I like them and I think I will probably jump in when I do my refurb work on my Outrun.

I am VERY interested in the repro CP and I can assure you these will be in high demand. Please develop these!

Cheers

Educate a noob

What do these gears do? Is the steering wheel supposed to return to centre? I'm buying a cabinet and the steering appears to work?

The original gears which are behind the Steering wheel on the Control Panel, were made of plastic, after wear and tear, they normally split, some just stay cracked, others will just fall totally off. Whilst I've seen a brass replacement gear in the past which are now super hard to find, Ordyne has made some new metal ones, which look to last forever. I see a lot of these 3D plastic printed jobbies on ebay, but don't think I'd ever buy one of those.

The Springs pull it to the centre.....In fact Craig do you have of those left in your stock?

Cheers

They are part of the gearing mechanism, connecting the central spindle to the steering pot (which ultimately connects to the game board). Two large springs return the steering to the central position. 

All unserviced OutRun cabinets I've ever seen have had cracked A and B gears. They are made of plastic originally, so suffer from wear and tear. Here are mine before I replaced them: 



You might find your steering works, but when inspected you will probably find the cogs are cracked. 

Some more details from my restoration here

Up until now, the best option was some 3D printed replacements. They are well made, but use lightened springs to put less wear and tear on them. Ordyne has produced the super deluxe option, that are far superior to the originals or the 3D printed ones.

I'm sure when people move there outrun's on, showing buyers it has these metal gears, it's only going to make it more desirable and bullet proof. I'd love a set, but I need a cab first
Out of room but always room for one more !

Yes, then the weakest point becomes the PCB itself. I wonder if Sega could be persuaded to open source the plans of the custom chips they used, enabling replacements to be engineered in the future.

I wish all the manufacturers would do this, it would be a great gesture for the arcade communities. We can dream.

Just received mine, omg these gears are the NUTS!

If you own an Outrun, you will regret not getting these when they are gone.

quality quality product, think they may weigh more than the cab itself!

Hey Craig, thanks so much for taking the time and effort to produce these.

Simon.
