New to AEG Gearboxs JG / SRC Comparison

Ok so I've always left the AEG stuff to others (more of a gas / spring person) but I've recently grown sick of bringing it into the shop and then paying $20 labour fees every-time.

These are the two GB I have one is from an SRC M4 where the trigger is locked up and I really don't care for it and the other is a JG reinforced black type GB from my Mk18 Mod0.

The SRC Gb was shooting idk what because its been broken for the past 2 years, something about a tappet plate. I have a feeling it was shooting 360Fps.

The JG is currently shooting 22Bbps at 280Fps. But it occasionally skips to full-auto when its on semi.

My question is what should I take from the SRC Gb and replace in the JG Gb.

I saw that the anti-reverse latch on the SRC is one solid piece whilst the JG one was 2 seperate peices.

Honestly I've never touched let alone opened an AEG so please bare with me I'm really just looking for parts to exchange between the two to make one of them run very well at around a 350Fps configuration.

I do have a spring that was shooting 425Fps on hand could I cut that down to run at 350Fps?

Also would the SRC or JG Gb be better to use as a shell.

Thanks in advance.

The SRC bushings have a little wiggle space in the JG Gb should I just keep the plastics ones?
To late I kept the JG gearbox and when I put it back together I broke both of the motor connectors so I have no way of knowing if its working. :-/

Having played around in a gearbox now I can see why AEGs can be so ****ing finicky compared to gas or spring weapons.
Well the SRC wiring was completely melted into the trigger housing making them pretty useless. I don't really have AEG spare parts lying around or own a proper solder so I need to drive 30minutes to the shop for a 2 minute fix and parts.

I'm just going to stick with my shotguns and HPA rifles from now on.
