Somne people set the mesh by putting a piece of paper between the spur and pinion, then bringing them tight together - when you pull the paper out, you have a little bit of a gap for a good mesh.

I do it by eye, so the gears are about 2/3 meshed, and you can just rock the spur back and forth before the pinion starts to move.

Thumbs up Another way to get proper mesh

Put on one toothe bigger pinion, make the gears tight then put on the one you are going to run. Works for me. Perfect spacing.
