    I had some ink on my vacuum pump getting on the gears. So I decided to take out the maintenance station and clean the pump and gears. I noticed the ink was all gucked up on the pump so I took the pump out of the maintenance station to get a thorough cleaning. I did not realize there was a spring and little gear inside. I am trying to reassemble the gearing and Im pretty sure I know how it goes, but I do not want to mess up my maintenance station in the process. If anyone could help and give me advice as to a correct way to line the gears back up it would be highly appreciated. Most concerned about the little gear under the bottom one in picture

    I am very curious as to how you put it back together. I am currently in the process of doing the same thing you did, but haven't gotten that far yet.

    It was just lots of trial and error. Moving the parts back and forth until the swiper moved back and forth correctly. I did not take note when I disassembled the pump as I did not know about the parts inside. Just take note and take some photos and you should be good when reassembling the pump

    There is one that goes under the cap top to the assembly that the cap slides back and forth on
