Famo build question

I'm putting the drive sprockets on my famo and one side has been attached without a problem but this side catches with the wheel, everything to my eye seems fine and I can't rotate the gearbox end to move the shaft slightly.

Hello,

you have to ajust it with the tapperlock. Its important that the drive sproke is in the rigth line to the track wheels.
finaly put on the track, let it run slowly, without tighten the tapper. if it runs perfect, than you can tigthen the tapperlock.

Cheers
Florian

Thanks
