Well, my luck ran out today on battery pack 13 (unlucky I guess). I lost control at it came down very hard on the top of the rotor head. Bent main shaft, flybar, and the works. The 2 teeth engaged with the pinion when it crashed were chipped off so I need a new main gear. Can I buy the one w/o the one way bearing for $5 cheaper and swap out the one way bearing on the new gear? I am already at $50 of parts so I am looking to save anyway I can. Secondly, is it important to replace the step washer with another step washer vs. a flat washer. It looks like a small step and I hate to buy the $12 hardware kit for 1 washer.

Yes, you can. I just did that the other day, but IMO it was not that easy. You have to use a vice to push the bearing from the old gear onto the new one with an appropriate sized socket. It's real tight and everything has to line up. I think I read how to do that here.
Secondly, is it important to replace the step washer with another step washer vs. a flat washer.
I would think that it is, but I'm no expert. The steps on the washer are what ride on the bearing.

Don't worry, you'll use other stuff in the kit.
Have you taken the main shaft out yet? With a stripped gear I'd bet the M2 X 12mm socket head cap screw is bent.

Yeah i agree with wolfpackin stick with the step washer.If you can't get some with the blade 400.The cp pro also will work.The cp pro and blade 400 feather shaft is the same size.Just the cp pro shaft is shorter.

Don't talk to me you will make me crash
