Any tricks for lining up the wheel on world fair so it awards the right numbers? Mine fell off and I can't seem to figure it out and trial and error isn't going well. Here is a photo. Top wheel is sitting on 10.

Not sure where you're looking. Do any of these pictures help?

Not really, that wheel is under the playfield and makes contact when the wheel spins and awards a cart number on the ferris wheel. It dropped off into the bottom of the box and now whenever I try to hook it back up the awards never match up. I may just need to try every spot until it's right.

In my experience unless you mark the 'relevant spots' on the stepper, wheel & wheel retainer before disassembly it is tricky to get an approximate location & then to fine tune the spot. So yes probably a bit of trial & error. An alternative may be to do a trace on the stepper rivets to identify a number & then get alignment with that number on the spin wheel.
