I need to check with our QC engineer. He is going to make sure it will work. There have been slight differences in the past with internal dimensions for models with different gear ratios. I will let you know as soon as I have an answer.

Also simply changing the drive gear will not do it. You will need both the pinion and drive gear. Beyond this, the gears will more than likely need adjustment by use of shims. If you are not familiar with this process, or how to properly open and lubricate the Stella, I highly recommend sending it in to us. This assuming the swap can be performed.

He says it should work. You will need the pinion gear, drive gear and one idle gear.
