The PRM 160 gearbox was produced in a number of versions. Both the PRM 160S (short shaft) and PRM 160L (long shaft) were replaced by the PRM 160V which ceased production in March 1990. The last PRM160V gearbox built was serial number 0505719.
The replacement was the PRM160D, which finally ceased production in March 1997, the last PRM 160D serial number was 0509993.
The latest replacement is the PRM 260D. This is a direct replacement for the 160D, but due to the variations, input shaft length and mounting hole patterns should be checked, as they may not be compatible.
The inline model PRM 160C is replaced by the PRM 260C.
The PRM 160T (taper shaft) gearbox can only be replaced by the 260D and will need a compatible drive plate.
Many spares for the PRM 160 and PRM 260 gearbox range are the same. However, there are variations from the early models and as the PRM 160 is now a discontinued gearbox, some items are no longer available. We stock most of the main service items, but if you cannot find what you need, please contact us with your requirements, remembering to quote the model and serial number.
