Question: Hello again! I've installed a 14 tooth Robinson Racing steel pinion in my vintage Fox runner but though it appears to mesh correctly it feels a little lumpy and sounds a bit loud/notchy. Everyone seems to suggest these pinions will prolong the life of the gearbox but i am thinking this is going to chew my gears up! I researched and got them in the correct pitch (32dp if i recall correctly). I've checked the spacing plate is in the correct position but it just doesn't seem/sound right...... Any Skidmeister words of wisdom for me? Cheers!

The wise one answers:

Sometimes the steel gears do this. Run it a few times and see how you go. Try slackening the screws, move the motor round a bit and tighten them back up?
