I fear dizzlebizzle may have left us, but I have just replaced the cogwheel in my MMI for a brass one due it it snapping in half.
Having seen this thread I thought I would test before too far into reinstallation, and it is exactly the same. So for anyone else doing this, it is a common issue.

The walnut cover clips on a curved metal cover and this has a rack of teeth along each edge that engage with a pinion bu.t it is not possible to change the position of this easily as I would have to jump a few teeth and they are tight meshing. I only replaced the motor cog, so not sure how it got out of sync.

Thanks Architex_mA8tey - what great instructions, much better than the ones I used. I have sorted the issue out and all back together.

Glad it helped
I've added it to the stickies in the relevant section plus the tech dump so it's there for anyone else
