Pinion drive gear in the gearbox

I have the pinion drive gear out of the gearbox and it seems to be in good order with no splits on the cogs. However I notice the cog spins freely on the shaft and it seemed to me that the cog should be locked to the shaft in order to transmit power the remaining gears in the gearbox. The problem I am trying to fix is the motor running does not turn the planetary gears with any strength. They might start to turn a bit and then stall and don't turn.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes you are right. The cog should be fixed to the shaft and turn with it; that's went wrong with mine. You can find replacements online.

I have identical symptoms on the planetary drive BUT there is no problem with my pinion drive gear and shaft, all fixed to shaft and in good working order - ditto for the clutch dog, no apparent damage.

Any other ideas, anyone?

OK - sorry about this but I found the answer to MY problem, might be related to the above issue too?

The dog clutch itself has an internal thread for screwing onto the top of the pinion drive shaft - on MY machine this thread inside the dog was completely stripped and the moment I removed the machine's top cover this clutch and spring popped off the shaft.

So not ONLY does the gear have to be affixed to the pinion shaft inside the gearbox, but so too does the dog clutch have be screwed onto the shaft above the fan belt drive cog.

It took me 3 days to find the info. to solve this problem so if this helps someone else - all the better!!!

all the best.
