Reply to "Lionel ZW gear jumping fix"

jimmysb, great video especially in light of the difficulty finding a service center that will take in a ZWC. I now have confidence in synching the potentiometers with the handles. in addition to my ZWC jumping gears, the (right side) accessory and track handles have an 1/8 to 3/16" gap between each other and the transformer casing thus causing the handles to have play as well as slide in and out horizontally. so I ask in addition to remedying the play with the install of a new bracket, is there a way to tighten the handles on the shaft , essentially drawing each closer together and to the transformer casing  to eliminate the horizontal play? I am thinking that this horizontal play may be contributing to the gear jumping in my case. I have (2) ZWC's and this condition only applies to the right side handles on one of them. any additional light you can provide would be awesome. Thanks
