I tried it. I think I understand everything, but it was very tricky getting the cover off. I practiced on an old one. The small gear that matches up to the larger counter gear came loose, with two washers. Can you guide me in a technique so that doesn't happen? Can you tell me where the washers go? Is there a diagram or anything I can reference? And last, when the counter is properly rest, the 'flag' will be hanging straight down. Correct? Thank you!

The flag should be up. When it first turns on it will engage and move to the down position. It moves from top to bottom to swipe the reset. switch.
Since Xerox doesn't want anyone to know this. I can't find any pics of how it sets up.
Wish I did. That way when I do it I could remember exactly myself, It's pretty mush a hit and miss thing.
