Alright, what ya gotta do is carefully seperate each dial on the reel. They don't have to come off the pin, but there has to be adequate space between each one. Between each will be a small metal plate/tab/whatever.

The purpose of the plate is that when the preceding number rolls over from 9, it forces the next dial to roll over to the next number counting up.

The goal is to get all the metal tabs in a straight line and all the dials matched up on 0. It will take a few tries, but it will only work one way. You want each plate to catch so that the plate to the right rolls over past 9 forcing the one on the left to move to the next digit.

Just keep spinning and aligning until you get the tabs and 0's in a straight line, with the 0's naturally on the side that should be facing out.

For a quick test, re-assembly without the glass and connect the cable in a drill. Don't spin too fast, just enough to get them moving and see if you are in fact counting up sequentially. Of course you will have to re-set to get back to 0.

JCinKY you are the man!

I went ahead and dissembled the assembly and cleaned it. Glad I did, the shaft had some rust spots and that’s what caused the unit to malfunction on tractor.

Still afraid to attempt to remove the needle though.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Lookin' good. Also check to make sure the worm gear and bevel gear on the shaft line up properly and everything is free to turn. I light coat of lubricant wont hurt anything.

Man, just pop that sucker off there. It won't be that bad. If it pulled the pin and all out, there isn't really any need to remove the needle from pin.

Just to give an update.

I did not remove the needle, just printed new face on self stick photo paper and cut it into two pieces and applied it under the needle and screws.

OK! OK! I ran out of ink. I now have the only working 8N that “red lines” @ 2,200 RPM.

PDF file (Proofmeter-Faces, by Mike Taylor) is on the other forum.

Thanks to all!
