Sounds to me like its probably ok and you're just being cautious Tony

Nothing wrong with that, it can save a lot of greif later.

I had a motor with all that stuff in a box and I was a bit worried

and confused at first when refitting it all.

I put a spanner on the end of drum and kept cranking it clockwise then

anti clock wise untilI could feel all the gears and neutral

they dont like to be shifted statically much so having another pair of hands

to turn the motor as you check you can get the full range will help.

I did it on my own but an assistant is often useful

if only to make the tea
