Looking to purchase and/or trade.

I need a sweep second wheel & pinion, and the little metal doohicky part with screw that holds it down.

I would very much love to get this whole again & running...

Does that fit any of the other 800 series Gruens? If so, I may be able to help! No promises, but I seem to remember having some of those parts in stash.

People you thought were your best friends will stab you in the back to your face!

Love them anyway.

Hola Tomas,

The 806/807 models, which I have, are listed as swappable...BUT...none of them are SS models and never had the parts I need.
These little sweep second models are few and far between, so I may be s*** outa luck ever finding these parts...I've been searching for about a year now.
I certainly would be grateful for you checking your parts stash! Thanks mucho!

Liz

Timeliz,

Listen, I found two of the sweep retainers, and the screw. Problem: Can't tell which caliber it is due to it being worn off. Pm me your address, and we'll go from there. Sorry, but I don't have the sweep pinion
