Had this issue on RMA12343 causing a failure to extrude on the right nozzle.

RMA 12379 had the same issue. The left side (E@) knurled hobb was spinning in the large gear.

RMA12448 had this reported issue.

We received the parts made to the new drawing today, and I tested them with some of the gears that had holes on the larger side and they work.

Here is a control chart with extrapolated hole diameter and the knurl diameter.
