    I need to replace the wheels (gears) on my Proto 2000 EMD E8's.
    Does Athearn have a gear replacement part or the whole wheelset? These are 36" diameter wheels.

    John, the gears that Bob has provided a link to are correct. The inner diameter needs to be reamed with a bit smaller than the axle stubs that are attached to the wheels to help prevent them from cracking. I have used them for hundreds of axle repairs of old Proto 2000 locos.
