Default Help!! Tiagra 80

I took apart a brand new tiagra 80 just to put a little loctite on the starboard side of the reel on the screws that tend to back out with overuse of the clicker. No problems so far. But when I went to put the "starboard" side of the reel back on, as soon as I start to tighten screws down, the drag lever won't move or either the reel handle won't turn. Cannot for the life of me figure out what's going on.

I fixed it! Pinion gears had gotten misaligned and wouldnt seat properly on cross pin. Thanks so much to Andrew Alvarez at Melton Tackle for helping me diagnose problem remotely!
