I just got done building my first 700.. The only problem is that the main gear seems to be too tight.. I thought the problem was they were loose and stipping.. I thought it would loosen up a little after a tank or 2... Well, I put 2 tanks through it and it does not seem to be getting any looser... I don't see anyplace that I can make a gear mesh adjustment.. Any ideas? Just let it run in? The gear stops almost as soon as the clutch is disengaged..

My stock gear had about ideal mesh but stripped in about 15 flights. Replacement -1 align gear had no mesh and has went about 35 flights more with no problems. Mine has worn in a tiny bit but still is very tight. I wouldn't worry about it.

I wonder if it is putting some extra load on the engine also?

I just installed the GForce adjustable clutch block and engine mounts and one of the new main gears--sure was nice to be able to set the lash between main and pinion gear and really seems to be a good system. I never stripped the main gear that came with my kit but it was a little too loose in my opinion. Tried the new main gear first, without the adjustable clutch / engine mounts and it was too tight. I think I'm in good shape now and for any one desiring to adjust gear mesh, I suggest trying the adjustable setup. My 2 cents----
