I hope neither your or my stop looks like the photo of one I took out a few years ago.
Thanks for that Julian.

It is very wobbly.

In answer to you pinion question
Pointed tooth pinion must be used with pointed tooth quadrant
Same applies to flat topped tooth and quadrant
Do not mix them *warn*

If it falls out just put it under your pillow for the Kickstop fairy. You may get a sixpenny piece!

All done, the quadrant stop was just loose, the hole was ok so I fitted a new stop without removing the back plate.
The tooth grinding feeling when I kicked it over was found to be the drain plug. To make things easier when changing the gearbox oil I had changed to a ½" long whitworth bolt, when I removed it I noticed that it had some wear marks on the end, I ground some off and all is ok now.
Thanks to everyone for the help.
Roy.
