I also noticed that the engine sprocket where you use the sparkplug to turn it is also loose. So i tightened that.
Im still worried about the small gear being out of place.
Any response would be appreciated.
Its common for that gear to set out a bit farther like yours is, what I would do is get you some blue thread locker (loctite) or equivalent, go ahead and remove that screw, put a few drops of the loctite on it and then put it back nice a tight, let it sit over night and you should be good to go.
