lippert 18:1 gear pack clutch

Anybody mess with the clutch pack on a lippert slideout with a venture 18:1 motor/gearbox? The plastic secondary gear stripped in mine. I found a new one that comes with a new clutch pack for $70, go figure $70 for a plastic gear. I'd like to find some tech data or instructions on assembling the clutch pack in the correct order, what order the washers go and which direction they go in. I don't think it was working correctly causing the gear to strip.

Yeah, it's a real nice setup with plastic gears! Anyway, possibly this will help Lippert Venture Motor 18:1 Replacement Gear Set
I think there is a poster on here that may have just the nylon secondary gear for sale, I think he had to buy like ten of them, try a search for "venture" or "lippert" on this forum.
If I remember correctly the two thrust washers go in font of a behind the gear, and there is a washer to take up the lateral thrust on the gear. Hope this maty help.

I got a pretty quick response back from venture with a very nice diagram showing the correct orientation of the spring washers and shims ( which may or may not be installed) . I've attached it if anybody else needs it.
