How to change gears on the 20 quart Country Freezer ice cream machine and the antique 20 quart White Mountain.


The threads are a standard thread "Righty Tightly and Lefty Lossy".

It is hard to grab the shaft if the love joy (sprocket, universal joint?) unscrews.  You can put some Loctite and let it set for awhile or just grab the thread's with a Vise Grip.

If you make some marks on the thread's, it will go back together hard, but it will be tight for the next time you replace gears.

If all else fails, use a Dermal too and cut t into the shaft gear.  You can order new ones from or call Tom   336.984.2885
