...From Saturday to Wednesday. Jetting off to not so sunny Malaga, never been to spain and I am not looking forward to trying to avoid pork dishes. Promised the missus I would stop talking to you 'orrible lot during the time we are there!
Really hope the weather picks up!
...Having said that... any decent Surplus stores in Malaga??? 👨✈️
I can take more pics with better lighting - at the current point of the rebuild I know where everything goes so I can do it up to where it is now, but none of the (I've got about 8 bookmarked now) videos of people dis/reassembling this gearbox don't seem to show where the parts I have circled in red go. Shall I just record a vide of me putting it together to where it is now and you can tell me where to go next or any parts I'm missing?
It's all well and good saying X spring is for Y part, but without a picture showing *where* the thing goes I still have no idea, not blaming you or anything and thanks for trying to help etc. I'm hoping the guy who said he was gonna do it and post pics of the process comes through and matches my gearbox so I know where all the bits go. I'm especially worried about the 2 tiny springs and the tiny brass nub and those two plastic bits that look like they are part of the gear area yet don't see any obvious way to install them.
I got a new pack of shims for it and 'shimmed' it when putting the gears on (about 5-6 came out of it when I took it apart but they were all bent and shit hence new ones). I could probably take it all apart and rebuild to my current state in less than 10mins and if I do it on video and link it to you guys you could tell me what I'm missing or whatever.
I'll do that later today (wednesday) - one thing though, I noticed the teeth on my piston are kind of stripping at the points, since I've got the gearbox open and everything right now I figure if I'm gonna replace it I might aswell do it now, I counted the teeth on it and it has 13 teeth - if I'm replacing it, which one should I grab from here? https://www.fire-support.co.uk/category/shs/
I haven't changed the actual gears or anything and the pistons all have different amounts of teeth on them so I don't know at all whether one with more or less will do anything, or if it does what /exactly/ it would affect performance wise (or even work) - if I'm getting a new piston, what about the piston head, or even a whole new set of gears? they're not expensive and I've sunk a lot ofmoney already into this £300 gun so I kinda just want it to be as best as possible, any advice at all would be appreciated.
