    What is the pinion size?... If you want to put a pinion smaller than 12t, you may need to remove the plastic cap on the motor back.

    Its a little more complicated then just mvong them together. You have to set correct gear mesh. Too loose and you will burn up the gears, too tight and you will burn up the slipper shaft bearing. Some do it by ear but an easy way is to put a pice of paper between the gears (cash register receipt is great) then tighten them together and remove the paper. When done rotate the sput all the way around and make sure you have not spots that are too tight.
