Gear seeking? Answered

 Hi all instructables dudes,

 I have a scanner made by Pimax (model name Profi 9600) drived by a SCSI adapter. Is old model (1999) but is very good and reliable too. The problem now is i have a broken plastic gear that drives the belt for doing the passes during the scanning. Without this small gear the belt is dead and the scanner too. Has anyone this small gear from his old and non using scanner? If not please inform how can i reuse this scanner because everything else on it works fine. Can i modified it to a manual shifted scanner? This scanner is ONE pass so can I put any external case hand gear to move the lamp?

Please give some ideas.....anyone is acceptable....

thank you all in advance!
