 I am moving this at Neil's suggestion- I must admit I didn't spot what the other thread was called, just glad to find some info.

I have just pulled my jumpy regulator out. I think that the issue is the pinion rather than the 'rack'(spring) as the spring looks fine, but it jumps at the same place on each handle revolution.

I have a NOS regulator, BUT, it is a bit kinked and straightening it looks tricky without kinking the split tube.

So, probably a silly question, can you get the the winder apart, so I could perhaps put the new winder on the old mech, pcossibly with a new spring? This suggests it is to change the spring?

Oh dear! I did this some time in the last century.

As I recall the answer was yes. What you do is drill through the four circular holes with progressively larger drill bits and that will eventually release the welds that hold together the two halves thereby releasing the pinion. Of course you later have the problem of putting it back together. I think I used a nut and bolt for each ground down to the minimum thickness. That was because I doubted I could weld it back together without distortion.
