thank you muchly tj
ive got it all back together but it sounds like something is grinding and im still missing the gear return spring
also when i cracked it open there was a part inside the case that was eaten up slightly directly in front of the petal shaft near the chain .
either way it don't sound good at this time and im trying to get it right before winter .. and i don't want to damage anything further
im gonna try to get a short video in the morning just to show what im talking about
