since main gears are pretty cheap you might as well just change it out

AND set the mesh with two thicknesses of paper.

just changed the main gear,can`t believe how quiet it is now!couldn`t get the main shaft out,unfastened the grub screw holding the collar on but it still wouldn`t budge.had to unscrew the metal centre part of the main gear and change it that way.is the main shaft glued in somehow as it seemed to be stuck fast?

It shouldn't be glued but I have heard of many people fighting to get the main shaft out, I always say

"When in doubt, Hammer it out!"

that`s a great quote!!it really was stuck fast,if i had tried much more i`m sure the frame or something else would have snapped.changing it the way i did was so easy anyway,that is the simplest way i`m sure.no need to take off the blades,fly bar,centre hub etc,just 4 screws and off it comes.

The shaft gets burrs on it that have to be removed with Emory cloth or sand paper.
