laserwriter II paper feed problems

I am trying to revive an apple laserwriter IIg.

The pickup roller was not picking up so I replaced the pickup roller and separation pad.

After replacement, when printing out more than 2 pages in a row, the first page comes out okay, the second page is shifted down a bit, the 3rd, 4th, 5th etc...pages come out shifted down about 1/2". Put another way the 3rd 4th 5th ...pages have an extra 1/2" of space on the top of the page and the bottom 1/2" gets cut off. I can't live with that because three to a page flyers printed in landscape mode, which is what i need, get cut off.

i do not know if this printer had this problem before i got a hold of it. I could not tell because before it was picking up the paper very erratically. Now it's predictable but still incorrect.

any helpful words would be greatly appreciated!

There's a kit for this, I believe, called "Top Margin Shifted Down" off the main page.
