I’m new here bit am having an issue. I’m trying to put my gearbox back together but each time I do the gears jam and the plunger gets stuck halfway back. My question was how important is it to align the sector gears first tooth with the 15th tooth of the plunger rail. I’m aware of AOE, I’m asking specifically about the importance of the first tooth of sector gear to 15th tooth of the plunger.
I haven’t paid much attention to it in the past as (in my head) it shouldn’t matter too much initially as it would just do a half cycle and then “reset” to a full stroke?
