Panther Turret Traverse Problem Solved  Right_12

This particulr HL airsoft was the one I converted to IR and had to rebuild all the internal "posts" that the screws go into on virtually every part of the tank.

I was very careful and thought I got the new posts to the right height but a few were out a bit Embarassed causing some alignment problems.

I was able to fix these with washers but the turret was "drooping" in the front causing it to bind on rotation, likely also throwing the turret ring gear out of alignment as well which wouldn't help at all.

I examined it in detail and could not get the turret issues sorted out.

At the meet, Strato suggested a washer under the turret ring, good idea but it was tough to get something with all the right dimensions.
