I was given an old LaserWriterII with ntx upgrade (i.e., case says LWII, startup page says LWIIntx) with only 20K on the counter. The thing accordion jams just ahead of the fuser - the problem seems to be that two gears (left-rear, one in the top, one in the body) are worn because they don't mesh properly when the top is shut. It appears that the latch is "congenitally" loose, allowing ~1/4" of play when closed, and it looks as if this caused the premature wearing of the gears. I haven't found a way to tighten the latch, so I have a few questions:
1. Is this likely to be the root of the problem?
2. If so, is there a way to tighten this latch so the top stays tight?
3. Is there an accordion jam kit for this model (that I presume includes replacement gears)? When I went to the repair kit page for LWII, I found kits for only Pickup Jam, Top Margin Shifted Down and 2 Blinking Lights.
TIA - mgh
