    When I assemble the gearbox and pull the trigger the moter only clicks, what's wrong? What are the possible errors?

    Motor height may be too high get the screw at the bottom of the grip and unscrew it some.

    You may have shimmed the gears to tightly.

    I only put one shim on each side of the gear.

    Ok well since its a version 3 just rule out the motor height because if I'm not mistaken V3 gearboxes have a fixed motor height.

    So what's the most possible error in the gearbox then?

    No it's not under the motor is a screw to use to adjust motor height, remove the bottom of the grip or the grip entirely depending on gun.

    This:

    Battery's dead.
    Motor contacts aren't connected.
    Wiring has a tear in it.

    1: Battery is charged.
    2: Motor Contacts are connected, if they were not, then the motor woulden't make that click.
    3: I checked the wires for tears, but non of them have any tears on them.

    Did you install anything new into the gearbox such as a stiffer or stronger spring?

    No everything is stock, well the only things thats not stock is the motor cage, and a new short motor, but it's from China so I doubt that's a change.

    ^^That makes it sound even more like motor height problems, why don't you adjust it already?

    Did you open up the gearbox at all? Or did you just change out the motor and motor cage?

    Tyson, thanks for responding, I already fixed the gearbox, the problem was the motor height.
