Out of curiosity, does anyone produce a non-straight cut idler gear with the roller bearing? I see lots of them in the straight cut config but never to simply replace the standard one...and get away from the need for thrusts.

MS tried developing a kit but didn't last apparently. Problem is with helical gear is the side loading, which is no good for a standard roller bearing, ideally needs a taper.
