Scrambler - thanks for the reply and the pictures; that answered a lot of questions. I put the NX back together and rode it to work and back, about 6 miles. The new chain is great and the countershaft didn't
The countershaft is in good shape. I still think that that is a hell of a lot of lateral play, but I haven't had to deal with countershaft sprocket before. The back and forth play, chain directions, is much better than side to side. Tell me what you think.
I failed at getting the video to embed so you'll have to settle for the link.
