  • GE. B.E teardowns

    Learning as we go.

    How do you remove the armature/worm gear assy. from a GE BE gearbox? i found an old manual here, but its really no help as most of the pages are missing. i have a few BE gearboxes that are leaking from the armature shaft and need to be replaced.

    Remove the six cap screws and pry off the offset cover from housing(carpet drive).
    Remove the entire offset shaft assy. out by pulling straight out on the shaft while lightly tapping against housing.

    Remove the four cap screws and pry wheel shaft cap(pinwheel drive) loose from housing and slide cap off the wheel shaft.
    Slide oil collector tray out of housing.
    Remove wheel shaft assembly from housing by pressing downward slightly on end of wheel shaft and pulling outward on the shaft.

    Remove the four cap screws and pry distributor cap loose from housing.

    Remove offset pinion nut, offset pinoin gear, offset pinion key.(*wormshaft spacer and worm shaft ob bearing)

    Remove four cap screws and by gently tapping on adaptor it may be removed from housing.

    You should be able to gently drive the whole assembly out..(**wormshaft spacer and worm shaft ob bearing)should come out now.

      If you are talking about just the worm shaft you will need a hydrolic press.I found that it is easist to take it to a machine shop.
