Have you tried the new pinion and shaft,the pinion looks like it is designed for another chopper and not the trex?.

Please do! the one i have is not the same as the one they show in the picture, the pinion part is way off to one side and the belt doesnt cover the roller guide, you may also have to sand the pinion "thinner" to fit in the gear box.

Sent an email a few days ago,not wanting to cause trouble i was going to let it drop and just consider it a bad purchase but i caught a glimpse of thier photo and noticed that the pinions and shafts(x2) were not the same as the ones in the photo,i had to shave the pinions down to fit and the belt is only 75% on the roller,both shafts were bent.
I,m wondering if there has been a screw up somehwere so thought it best to notify them.

My guess is the mhs photos are the prototypes and before went to production they decided to play it safe and allow more meat for the grub screw so had to move the pinion along a bit.a bit to far i think .
