TOPIC: gearbox reassembly

gearbox reassembly 5 years 3 months ago #69524

I am working on my second homelite project and have this problem: the driveshaft and propeller shaft won't move freely when I tighten the bolts that attach the lower leg with the lower unit. They only move freely when I leave 1 mm of space which is way too much. This is for a 1963 motor. I also had this a while ago with a later type that I couldn't set the bolts tight, although this one didn't have a gap. Anyone who is familiair with this?
