    Hey, William, thanks for the encouragement, I have always been mechanically minded so I know it will come in time.
    I am still having trouble with the drop. I’m just not sure what right is. Can you point me to the best explanation of it? I understand what it is, I just don’t understand what correct is. What can I study to help with why it works that way?

    I got the 89 back together and it works great. The teeth all look good. I had to bush almost every hole. Someone before me had punched up several holes, it was pretty nasty. I bushed both EW holes.
    As I was looking at the wear on the anchor while it was running, I noticed the teeth were not landing on the wear but off to one side. I’m not sure how that could have happened. The only thing I can think of is the repairer moved the wheel and pinion on the arbor. I don’t know but it seems like it is running on a fresh track. Is that something you have seen before?
    The gear below it is still on the 3rd part of the pinion closest to the wheel. You could probably get another 20 years out of it. Is that the wrong way to look at it? Anyway, I’m going to file it down and fix it. It will be a good learning experience.
    Okay, thanks again for the help. If you know of somewhere to get a better understanding of the drop and lock thing please let me know.
    God bless, take care, Danny
