Nice writeup. I'm attaching a few photos for anyone who sees this in the future. There are brass gears available on ebay (linked somewhere on here). I've also found listings for replacement plastic gears. Once, I shimmed the gear up with a thin washer, so a different part of the gear teeth were grabbing. That's worked for 6 years or so.

Another common fail point which is not mentioned often is this metal bar that's driving the black gear. We made a new one from a washer (lots of trial and error)
