Would you use this? (broken pinion)

Would you run this? It was dropped, just that one tooth broke. I was thinking about maybe running it in the front. What do you think?

WHY? If he dropped it and it broke I wouldn't trust it to drive me around? Maybe it's just me but it seems like you would be asking for trouble to drive with any kind of a broken gear.

Id set it up and keep it on the trailer as a spare third for getting off the trail purposes, definitely would not daily drive it.

I just did some wheeling and drove 30 miles on mine with an entire pinion tooth missing. It makes noise under load and obviously is going to self destruct eventually but its working and got me home to where I could troubeshoot it.

A friend of mine had 2 or 3 teeth missing on the ring gear that would make noise under load sometimes and we couldn't figure it out. After some wheeling and about 60 miles of road driving we ended up tearing it apart and found the missing teeth.

I would say that tiny fragment out at the tip isn't going to make huge difference, just like shaving down a ring gear doesn't make a huge difference. Obviously its not ideal, but it will work just fine for most stuff. Just depends how hard you are on stuff and what your plans are.

If it's going in the front, i'd run it. Hell i've seen WAY worse than that being put back into a 3rd member. Will it last forever? Probably not. But if you're short on build funds and can put it in the front, I'd go for it.

I've seen worse on my own Jeep front and rear. They worked fine and I caught them before the blew. If I was building an axle with new install kit, joints and bearings I try to get a new free one. I've got free and severely discounted parts with just a simple phone call from even supposed "bad" vendors, years out of warranty and no questions.

If you can't get it for free, R&P's can be found as low as $130. Just get a new set.
