      I can't answer your question regarding the re-gear kit, but I do have a little
      expereince with the counterweights. I have built three of these kits, with the same
      results you've been getting. On one, I opted for the smaler plastic cranks, as the
      simplest solution. On the other wto, I VERY CAREFULLY opened the holes in the weights
      (do not touch the axles) with a set of needle files and an X-acto blade. With care,
      the quartering can be maintained. In any case, the holes in the side rods have enough
      slop to handle a little variation anyway.

      Good luck,
      Kenneth Rickman
