My 1982 Orange C8 w/fork mount and spur gear drive system has recently started to only work intermittently. You can always hear the motors and my drive corrector is certainly speeding them up or slowing them down but often the drive is apparently not working. I've read in my old C8 owners manual where apparently if the drive motor/drive gear engagement is too tight, it can cause some irregular drive behavior. Supposedly pushing the small end of each motor away from the center slightly can loosen that engagement a bit and perhaps clear up the problem. Does anyone have any tips on that procedure or any other ideas on roubleshooting or fixing this problem? I am all ears!
