Install The New Tilt Gear
Some Tilt Gears Have a Clutch, After the blind is in the closed position the operator continues to turn the wand,
(it turns, but not the louvers) The Cutch is to prevent the gear from breaking.
 The gear needs to be set at the opposite end of the blank spot, clutch (centering it) hold the tilt gear between your fingers (where tilt rod goes through tilt gear) turning it, while you turn the wand, to make it start turning on it's own.
With the slats in the open position, (This would allow light through if the blind where hanging) then slide pinion rod into tilt gear

Very Important To have The Drum in the correct position when sliding the tilt rod into the tilt gear
