Default Resetting the Odometer on 59

Hi all,

I followed the directions in the technical section on resetting the odometer (since we rebuilt the motor). The sheetmetal gear came completely off but I was able to get it back on. After installing the speedometer it makes a clicking sound while driving and the odometer won't turn. I made sure all the prongs were on the bar, I really can't see anything wrong. Has anyone else run into this problem?

Thanks,
Bob

If your take the odometer out, does the mechanism move freely? Something is not right in assembly.

I've got it out. I don't see anything wrong with the mechanism. I think maybe the sheetmetal gear is slipping off the center shaft, I'm going to try a little glue on it and see if that works. I'll let you know.
