PostSubject: adjusting the motor height on E1 G36C   Tue Apr 29, 2008 3:07 pm

What should the motor sound like? Before I adjusted it, my E1 G36C sounded high pitched. I turned the screw quite a bit and now it sounds lower pitched and sounds more normal to me. So my question is, what should the gearbox sound like? More of a deep tone, or a higher pitch? I don't want to break my bevel gear...........

I think I might need to grease my gearbox. Do you think I could do that without getting the gears out of alignment and having parts fly everywhere? Do you recommend a certain brand of greases?

thanks

You aren't going to be able to regrease it without opening the gearbox up.

As for the motor sound, it should sound lower pitched, like the motor has no strain. There is no set sound, as each gun is different, but when it runs the smoothest and doesn't sound like the motor has any extra strain, then you're at the sweet spot.

I think my motor was too high before I adjusted it.

I know that I will need to open the gearbox. I'm just worried if I open it up, the gears get out of alignment. I just want to grease it.

I think I'm going to open up my gearbox using mechbox.com's videos. Is it that hard to get everything aligned and working correctly? It looks somewhat simple, but hard at the same time.

When you open it, yes, pretty much everything will pop out, lol...
Luckily, only one gear really needs to be aligned, and that's the sector gear (the one that pulls back the piston).

All you need to do when reassembling is make sure that the post for the tappet plate is at about 1 o'clock (picture the gear as a clock face, and put the post at thw 1 o'clock position). That way, it's aligned with the piston for when it starts cycling.
Everything else will align itself with the first shot.

When I tried to reassemble my MP5 V2 mechbox, it was no where near as easy as it looks in the videos. Getting the spring and the spring guide back in without getting the gears misaligned is quite hard.

It doesn't take that much strength to compress the spring, you really have to experiment with different techniques of hand placement.

Gear timing isn't really a problem, for me, it is keeping the cylinder in so the piston doesn't slide of the rails, which prevents me from closing my gearbox.

^The only spring I've had problems with is a JBU M150. I still haven't got that one installed, lol...

Eventually I'll finish that install...
