Last I heard K&T was owned by Giddings and Lewis. They charged $125 for
photocopies of a couple of small manuals. I believe they have the part
drawings and either have some parts or can reproduce them. I do not have a
link but Google should find them. You may very well find out that the parts
cost will exceed the value of the machine. You might luck out and find a
machine being parted out by someone. Wish I could be of more help.

Its going to be cheaper to :
a. buy another machine
b. have the gears made
c. scrap out the machine
Ive had to condem 3 KT #2s in the last year or so, because the lube
pump gears swollowed its ass. I actually saved one, by installing an
outboard pump that pulls lube oil out of a hole drilled in the
casting, and recerculated.
If you need a couple #2s, I can get em for you for less than scrap
value (So. California)
I replaced the other two machines with KT #2s, which Ive been able to
buy for $350 and $400 respectivly
Why don't you measure the gears and see if they are stock items? Most
machine manufacturers used standard parts wherever they could, at least
in my experience. Might be cheaper getting them from a gear
distributor than from Kearney & Trecker.
