Default HS-55 not centering

I stripped some gears in my HS-55 and replaced them without any problem. However, now my servo doesn't seem to center in the same spot any more. It picks one spot turning clockwise and another spot turning counter-clockwise. I'm assuming it has something to do with the pot but I'm clueless. Any help would be appreciated.

I've heard of other people who have had similar problems with HS-55 servos. I'd say send it in to HiTec and let them tinker with it. It's a rather expensive servo just to toss in the junk bin.

I might end up doing that. I hope they don't charge a fortune.
