No, not off a tooth necessarily and not normal necessarily. In order for the dizzy to move like that, there would have to be some binding between the housing and the shaft. Either the housing is warped or the shaft is bent or something along those lines. Disassemble the dizzy and find out what the problem is before you hurt something.
