In order to have a good mesh for both 1st & 2nd gear I would have to mount the motor at a slight angle. Whats up?
It depends on which gears you're using. It's only possible to align the gears perfectly straight when the total amount of teeth are the same for both gearsets.
So for example a 52/15 and 47/20 gearing adds up to a total of 67 teeth on both gearsets. This allows you to align the gears perfectly straight. When both gearsets don't have the same amount of total teeth it's impossible to align the gears straight. When this is the case I would recommend setting the first gear mesh the best you can. The second gear mesh is less important, since it wears a lot less.
