I've searched around and I'm still having trouble. (I'm a borderline functional retard btw)

I'm installing a used set of gears in to a rear D60. I haven't pulled the carrier bearings or adjusted the shims on it so it's still set from the factory.
Should I just set the pinion depth and run it? This is the pattern I got by matching the factory shim pack on the pinion. Backlash is 10 thousandths.

This is about 6 thousandths added to the pinion and the back lash opened up to 14 thousandths.

Backlash is 10 thousands and this is the coast side.

I like the first pic best.... get the backlash down a couple more thou' and check.

Drive side more important on rear than coast. With used gears you can often only get the pattern so good, because of wear.

Thanks, I think I've got it whooped. The coast side is centered and the drive side looks good too. I didn't get it finished but the pattern is much better. I forgot to take a picture before I left for work.

Is the pattern close to what it was as previously installed?

Used gears will show you what their pattern was.

I dont know what the pattern was on the gears I am installing. I got them used from a co-worker.

The shiney area on the used gears will be the old pattern

It's a odd shape but it's within the desired area.

I'll post these here for others future reference.

Like I said in your build thread. That pattern shows the pinion is too deep. Pull 2 thousandths and it should be good to go. With used gears you're going to fight an uphill battle to get an accurate pattern. It looks like they were installed on the edge of shallow fron the start. The likelihood of getting a good patern ar this point is pretty low. You'll instead just keep getting the old pattern. Now it looks like you've moved to a completely virgin part of the gear, which at least is showing you something other than the original setup. From there you can back the pinion out to what should be a good position.

Sorry I took so long, I had to wait for the race to get to temp. So here's 2 thou removed. I feel like the it's now settled into the original wear pattern.
