The screws on my rohloff are all 20mm, not 25mm. So I bought 5 new m4x25 screws, tried to put them in, but though they engaged, they didn't go all the way down. Maybe the OEM axle plate is thinner than standard?
So I hacksawed 2mm off each, they all fit, and I clamped them down. Hurray!
Then I fixed the chain link that was the original problem, and put it back together.
It doesn't shift. Not one single gear. Even when I take it all apart again and try to shift w/ plyers it doesn't work.
The hub has been lying on it's side for a couple days, but I can't understand how that would be an issue.
