Default snap-on F723 3/8 ratchet

Im trying to restore this snap-on f723 but I need a new gear and one screw that goes in from the back side and holds the front plate.

Anyone know where I can get these parts?

Also what year was this ratchet made?

It's looking like they got your screws but not the pawl or the gear. Incidentally, if you do find a gear, make sure you get the matching pawl. On those older ratchets, Snap-on upgraded from a 20 tooth to a 30 tooth service kit and the gears and pawls have to match. Check eBay for NOS service kits.

The date code should be right by the lever between OFF and ON.

Look for the date code on the handle in between the grooves. They put it there sometimes. You might have to get the whole ratchet replaced if there's no more parts for it.

Order the special service tool while you're at it; you'll be glad you did.

I have an extra gear. PM me and it is yours. As long as you are in the lower 48 that is.

I just rebuilt one of these last month. The rebuild kit has new screws, seals, gear, pawl, and updated spring and ball.

You need to use a punch. The repair kit will include a new reverse lever and pawl. It's pretty much one time use.
