    Help with gear mesh!!

    Installed 18t pinion today (54t S) and I set the pins in the correct spot. But it really doesnt sound right to me. Is this normal?

    I'd recommend to anyone, remove those pins and set manually.
    In all honesty they are a great idea. Just way too much difference in company's gears. Not all the same size.

    I have tried to install the high speed config 18/46 using the pins, but like many people reported here in different threads the mesh is WAY to big ! I assume the motor stays in place with just the four motor mount screws tight enough? I’m gonna try that now.

    I don't see why it won't. I don't use stock motor or mount so I can't say for sure and I don't remember what it looks like. But the 4 screws should be more than enough to hold it in place.

    spur gears then tighten motor bolts

    No need to use a c-clamp to push the motor over to the spur. Just firmly push them together and when you pull the paper out it will look like: VVVVVVVV. You should be able to feed a strip of paper through the gears. If it rips, it is too tight. Then with the paper out study the lash and you won't need to use paper again.
