Glasswalker: You do have the right gear as I've been using the same one for quite a while. Try this. Turn the big gear around till you find the tightest spot where it meshes with the pinion. and put a mark on it with a magic marker. Now you know where the tight spot is even with the gear loose. Now loosen the pinion gear and back it off a bit then just snug it. Hang on to the big crown gear and rock the motor housing back and forth to feel the gear mesh. Slide the gears closer together till you can barely feel the play in the gears then tighten the motor up and give it a go.May take a few tries to get it right. After you run a few batts through it, check the gears again, lining up the magic marker mark, as they will loosen up a bit as they wear in. Hope this helps.

Gord.
