Any one out there who might have worm for sale


The worm or the gear or are we mixing the two?

If it's just the worm assuming the short one that should be easily replaced as you'll find plenty scrapped that have been snpped in half. I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of sizing it.

Regardless someone should have it or know where, you might want to try this member: http://nepacrossroads.com/member/scrapper_23jr/

There is place that has many Van Wert parts but can't remember the name at the moment. FYI there is some company building new ones, I'm sure they are interchangeable.

A&B rebuilds Van Werts and sells them. I'm not real sure when they shut down in Pecksville, but in the 80's I think.
Lots of them around.

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with the owner of A & B. His name is Arnie, and if you have any questions about Van Werts, he is the man to ask. He rebuilds older Van Wert units, makes replacement parts, and has the tools and patterns to produce new units under the A & B name. When we spoke he had some VA600's ready to go, and he was working on a VA2400 for a local highway department.

For anyone interested, his contact information is on the website: http://abvanwert.com/
