This is my first EM so if simple questions please forgive. The score wheel mechanism was wrecked on this almost as if hit with a hammer. I have got it all back in true and adjusted all the leaf contacts.
To do this I dismantled it completely. I have rebuilt and am at the stage of fitting the plastic score wheel on. How do I know where to fit it so it reads the correct number please? Is there a simple trick. This is the first one. Hopefully the other 5 will be much easier!?

on the reel with the numbers there is a little "index tab"

the image are 2 reels off a puck bowler, I circled the index tab on the reels

the one on the left is for the frame count & indexed so it starts on the first frame ("1") and goes to "10".

the one on the right is the score reel and indexed so it begins at "0" and goes to "9"

If the mechanical part (stepper) lifts up all three contacts, the number on the window side is at "0".
