Do you have a flat spot on the motor shaft for the pinion set screw?

I've had one let loose on occasion, just cleaned up the shaft and pinion, and reinstalled using a shot of blue loctite on the set screw of the pinion - making sure the set screw was tight by using an allen wrench that fit well. If you really want the pinion to stay put, wick a small amount of green loctite (the R48 in the 450 kit will do) onto the shaft and let it cure. If you ever need to remove the pinion, you'll need some heat, and perhaps a pinion puller.
