    I got one that is stripped new price is half cost of trimmer. Any sources for these on line? I guess I will either try to get used or get pionion set and bevel gear. Haven't tried to get it apart but it looks difficult!! Part number for pinion set is 22024-13391 and bevel is 22024-13220. And yes it had grease in I see why I have been running Echo. It is easy to find used gear heads for Echo since a lot of guys run raw gas and dealer get about one a week in scrap bin. I can get used gear box for Echo for $50.

    Yeah... raw gas, that's why the Echos end up in the scrap bin.

    Check Ebay for used units. Shindaiwa policy on new parts is like Stihl in that it doesn't allow for mail order or any other purchase besides in dealer. (found that out early on)

    I've seen some Shindaiwa gearboxes regularly on Ebay for about $35. I don't remember if they had any for a T270.

    I got a little discouraged when I looked at the parts diagram and then at my gearbox. My unit doesn"t seem to have a snap ring(item 11 in picture). Maybe I should be encouraged that the snap ring came out...but? I am overloaded with other repairs right now so this trimmer is on back burner. I hate to try to get the snap ring(item 17) on the pinion set side out since it down in the collar. But I guess I will have to tackle this thing soon since it has been a good unit.
