I thought about JB weld, im not sure super glue would hold. My concern is it gets pretty hot and this might fail.

I am pretty sure I had the gear on all the way to the stop point and as tight as I could get it.

I belive the gear is hardened so I doubt a file will do much. I am still thinking about having the inner diameter of the gear machined to make it about 1/8 deeper and about 1/16th or 2 wider to fit the gear a bit deeper.

Please keep the suggestions comming! Thanks!
