Nice one biggrin.gif

I was going to take my old one apart to see what was inside but you saved me a job smile.gif Do you have a pic of the inside of the casing? I guess there are just some teeth that the main gear fits into unsure.gif

I will take a picture tomorrow. It has helical cut splines inside. The helical cut gear then slides in (its a tight fit took me ages to get it out) then the spring and then the splined shaft.

Its a really simple intresting design... but like most Italian designs it never quite got perfected sad.gif

edit: the gear is the wrong way around in the bottom pic, whoops biggrin.gif
