Worm gear screw replacement for leveling scissors jack

One of the worm gear screws on my 19H leveling scissors jacks somehow got bent. I tried to straighten it out by taking the jack completely apart; but to no avail. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement worm gear screw?

Probably faster, easier and maybe even cheaper just to replace the whole thing.

As ww said, you most likely cannot buy the lead screw alone, you either straighten the old one or replace the whole jack.

I agree with the others, you many google for days trying to find a worm gear and never get one, ordering a complete replacement is probably the best way to go. Make sure when you use the jacks that you don't crank them down too hard. They aren't meant to life the trailer.

Like Chuck said, jacks are for stabilization only. I level the TT side to side with pads under the wheels, then level front to rear with the hitch support. Last thing is to put down the stabilizing jacks, and not too tight. Once the bar is bent, might as well get a new jack.
