29 Jul 11 Banebots P60 Gearbox Installation – The Robot MarketPlace This is a demonstration of how to attach a Banebots P60 gearbox to a 550 size motor. The mounting setup will work with 550 size or similar motor, so you can use whichever you prefer. The gearbox comes with two screws, two lock washers, and a pinion, so all you need is the gearbox and a motor. The first thing you have to do is press the pinion onto the shaft of the motor. This can be challenging if you don’t have a vice or arbor press. Always make sure you support the back end of the shaft so you don’t damage the motor, and also be careful not to bend the shaft when you’re pressing the pinion on. Then you need to carefully unscrew the four screws from the front of the gearbox, making sure everything stays together. Pull the back face off this assembly. It may be tight, so use caution if you have to pry it off. Attach the back plate of the gearbox to your motor with the screws and lock washers. Slide the ring gear off the inner gears. If you’re not able to just slide it off, pull the ring gear and whatever gears stay with it off of the shaft, and gently tap it on your bench top. Be extremely careful not to lose any gears! Grease each stage. We use Mobil 1 synthetic grease. All it takes is about a pea sized amount per stage. Stack them up as you grease them. Then slide the ring gear back on, being sure that the flats line up with the locking pins. It helps if the planets are aligned! If they aren’t, it can be really difficult to get the ring gear
