You will have to obtain a flywheel complete with gear. The flywheel you have is not machined to accept a ring gear, new gears are not available.
Can you suggest someone or a company who is likely to have these parts?

Thanks

There is no depth control and you have to keep your hand on the lever to hold in down position or it will spring back up. Any idea how to resolve th...
