Mach 2 Meshing

I am curious, how does the Mach 2 maintain its gear meshing on its own?

The worm assembly is on a pivot and uses springs to gently push it into mesh. The backstop is set to allow only a few thou of in-out movement which is enough to keep the worm always in mesh. The worm wheel is precision machined with extremely low eccentricity.
