Default Re: Help Bevel gear is fixing to come off

Glad you got it fixed. A trick i have used many times to lock the gears for loostening stuff, is to jam a copper penny into the gears where they mesh. the copper is soft and doesn't harm the gears.

A flat piece of copper makes a good gasket scraper for alumunum cases too. Dulls quickly and needs re-filing every munite or so of use. No matter how aggressive you scrape, the copper won't scratch or cut the aluminum.
