    It's well hidden, you have to drill the rivets that hold the drive gear to the housing and in the drive gear housing you'll find the wound spring........don't try this without staking or gripping the exposed spring to relieve tension. If you don't, things go flying and dents happen and blood will flow. I've got an idea how to tighten up this little problem but I'm gonna give MAC a call and gain advice.
