During my recent addition of instructions for
 
Gear No: G31314DkNo  Name: Racers Super Speedway Board Game (Danish/Norwegian)
* 
G31314DkNo (Inv) Racers Super Speedway Board Game (Danish/Norwegian)
Gear: Game: Racers
, the part I created
for the instructions was converted to an instructions entry which seems fair.

But this indicates that these instructions

[G=GA11NoDkinst]

that I previously created should also be converted from gear to instructions
for set

 
Gear No: GA11NoDk  Name: Legepladsen, tællespil for førskolebørn / Lekeplassen, tellespill for førskolebarn (dan-spil)
* 
GA11NoDk (Inv) Legepladsen, tællespil for førskolebørn / Lekeplassen, tellespill for førskolebarn (dan-spil)
Gear: Game: Duplo

Can an administrator perform this task?

Yes without a problem.
This is thing almost nobody remebers that it is possible.

Instrcution entry for gears is possible under the same entry as it is in sets.
But for gears this is turn off by default when new entry in gear is created (as
mostly gears do not have instructions).
So the only think which I need to do is just turn on instruction entry for certain
gear in admin page for that item

So procedure will looks like this (I'm writing this for future submissions)
If somebody want to add instruction for gear firstly should ask (like you) in
catalog request on forum to turn on instruction entry for specific item. Then
when I turn it on image for such entry can be simply uploaded by normal function
"add instruction image"
https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogImageAdd.page?itemType=I
but there is small difference in numbering system. When you entering set number
they mostly have '-1' appendix so like xxxxx-1 When instruction for gear
is created then gear have different appendix (then system knows that image is
for gear instruction). This appendix is '-99' so when you enter item
number when submitting image for gear's instruction the number in second
box must be '99' (sequential number).

Whatever it was, it's gone now.
