While fitting them in I decided a little attention to the fit of the gears to the rack was due. Found out the notch the gear shaft was set in was way too deep and allowed the gear to jump over the rack teeth. Simple solution was a wood shim set on each end of both shafts between the gear and knob ends taking a little under 1/8th inch out of the depth with no binding.

Thanks for sharing this Gary. My Korona's front standard tends to jump & slip sometimes too. I'll give this fix a try.
