    I got another newbie question. So I reassembled a regula 25 and I'm waving trouble getting bird wire to move.
    Any tips on re-assembly.
    Like, warning pin location, etc...

    Does it move at all? Or is it moving at the wrong time? If it doesn't move at all, you either missed putting something back in the movement or it's not assembled correctly. If it's moving at the wrong time, you probably put the gathering pallet on wrong in relation to the tabs that swing out the arm. Here's a pic to show you how it should look.

    That little tab at the bottom of the perch wire is critical. If it's not installed correctly, you won't get any perch movement.

    Thanks everyone. It was assembly. The pin that pushes the paddle on arm was on wrong side of paddle! Pu it right and now it's up and running.
