The 96 Tooth Cast Iron Worm Gear Assembly is a worm drive that fits any of the BH-USA flat-plate hoists. The worm gear mounts to the top of a gear plate. The drive pipe sides into the opening of the worm gear. As the motor turns the worm gear, the drive pipe rotates in either an “up” or “down” direction (depending on which way you have the hoist turning).
Features a 1/4 in. grease fitting on the drive pipe opening. Includes install sleeve, backplate bearing with snap rings, and axle sleeve bolt. Match a cast iron gear with a steel bronze worm.
Do not attempt to put a bronze gear on a bronze worm.
A worm drive is a gear arrangement in which a worm (which is a gear in the form of a screw) meshes with a worm wheel (which is similar in appearance to a spur gear).
