I just received a Dual 1246 from ebay that turns out (no surprise) to have some problems.
What appeared to be going wrong was a host of issues related to a bad steuerpimpl. (As often found in these pages.)
I opened it up and saw that the steuerpimpl was "gone". I fabricated a substitute (minding the specs) but in doing so. I moved the gear a bit because I had trouble getting the main lever back on over the steuerpimpl. I appears I took the lever off during the part of the cycle when tolerances are tight between the level and the steuerpimpl.
Now thinks seem better. However, now the arm swings all the way to the center when I start it. I wonder if I upset the synchronization by shifting the clear. Perhaps I set the pin of the lever in the wrong place. If so, how do I know how to reset the lever with the gear in the correct position.
Thanks in advance for any advice,
