I assume you know that your dealer can get all of those items for you. If not, happy to give you the # of one who can.

No way, oh my gosh am I a dummy. I never would have thought to call a Shindaiwa dealer for Shindaiwa parts. Kidding aside, thanks. I have called probably 20 dealers today (so no tx#'s please) and have found 1 used lower that I have to check out Thursday. To piece them back together would cost more than the price of a new trimmer. These two powerheads were cannibalized for the shafts years ago. I was hoping to find some nice person on here that has a similar but opposite problem, having shafts ect. only. Shindi used to ship these in two boxes so I called all over the place today checking to see if any were laying around in someones shop. There is also quite a delay on parts for Shindi due to the buyout of them by echo. Thanks again though.

I have 6 of the old F230's.(best trimmer ever made, IMO) There is a dealer here that is able to get any part I need for them. It used to take only a few days to get parts. Now it is taking 2 to 3 wks. I am trying to stock up on parts, incase echo shuts down shindi.

You definitely have some history with Shindy. F230's were early nineties or so? I have never ran one but given when they were produced I am sure they are bombproof. My relationship with Shindy started with T270's and T-230's. Shindaiwa made great equipment. I have not had to buy any in several years because of their quality. I hope they continue to make great stuff under new ownership. My heart sank when I heard an Echo in Shindaiwa.
