Thanks for the quick response Louis! Here's my dilemma...I bought a brass kidney bottom about a year ago, but haven't started the restoration yet. After seeing this thread, I realized I didn't know there were Type A (2 holes) and Type B (1 hole) versions of the gear box. So, I checked what I bought versus what was on my fan, and of course, they are different. :cry:    My fan has the 1-hole Type B gearbox, but my new brass gearbox has 2 holes. If I was able to lay my hands on some Type B gears and shaft, would I be able to switch out the gears and use the 2-hole brass bottom I already bought? Or, is there more inconsistencies between the 2 versions?
