    • Insert both Rotors on the Eccentric Cam

    • The Screw Head side of each rotor is facing away from each other

    • Align the Eccentric Cam and Shaft Holder Cams and partially screw in the M3x30mm Screws.

    • Check that the T Rotor is facing the Shaft Holder Cam

  7. Insert M3 Hex Nuts on the side of the Motor Shaft Coupler Align the Coupler offset and Eccentric Cam offset Make sure the B Rotor and its Screw Head side facing the Coupler
    • Insert M3 Hex Nuts on the side of the Motor Shaft Coupler

    • Align the Coupler offset and Eccentric Cam offset

    • Make sure the B Rotor and its Screw Head side facing the Coupler

    • Screw in the rest and Tighten it

  8. Prepare the following components:
    • Prepare the following components:

    • Assembled Input Shaft and Rotors

    • [3D] - 3GB Elbow GB Housing Top Halves

    • NOTE that the one of the Housing Halves has extra extrusion on top, this is the Sensor Side

    • Steel dowel pin - [3x24mm] (x36)

    • M3x25mm Screws (x11)

    • M3 Nylock Nuts (x11)

  9. Insert 6809 Bearings on the Housings Insert all 36 Steel Pins on the Sensor Side Half of the Housing
    • Insert 6809 Bearings on the Housings

    • Insert all 36 Steel Pins on the Sensor Side Half of the Housing

  10. Alignment of the rotor is critical for these gearbox to work. Notice that there are 2 "T" Labels on the T rotor, and same with B rotor with "B" Labels One "T" is on the Tooth and the other "T" is in between 2 Teeth, This is also the same with B rotor
    • Alignment of the rotor is critical for these gearbox to work.

    • Notice that there are 2 "T" Labels on the T rotor, and same with B rotor with "B" Labels

    • One "T" is on the Tooth and the other "T" is in between 2 Teeth, This is also the same with B rotor

    • Make a Sharpie Mark in between the teeth of "T" Rotor Where the "T" is Labeled

    • For B Rotor, Make a sharpie mark on the tooth where the "B" is Labeled.

    • The Correct Alignment will look something like the Third Picture

  11. Once the Rotor is Properly aligned, all 12 inner holes will have the same space between them when looking directly above it Carefully insert the Rotor while maintaining this position on the Housing with the pins. Make sure the Shaft Holder Cam side of the shaft is going in first
    • Once the Rotor is Properly aligned, all 12 inner holes will have the same space between them when looking directly above it

    • Carefully insert the Rotor while maintaining this position on the Housing with the pins.

    • Make sure the Shaft Holder Cam side of the shaft is going in first

    • Press the second half of the gearbox into place.

    • Verify that you can manually turn the eccentric shaft in the center and that the rotors smoothly turn inside the housing. Tight printing and misaligned rotors can cause the gearbox to jam.
