Just swapping to a spool. Same shim measurements as what came out. .09 BL. Thinking pinion needs to go out .005 to .01. Would like a second check/opinion.
A big key to setting up used gears is checking the BL before they are removed. 14 isn't that bad for a used set of gears. The pattern is the main thing, then worry about BL. Or don't. I gave a worn out set of 9" gears from my race car to a buddy. The perfect pattern resulted in 22 thou BL. He's running it going on 3 years.
Thanks for the info.I don't think you have enough backlash; your on the toes... Can you try .008" or .009"???
Used gears can be a bitch to read...
Try loading down the pinion or carrier to spread out the gear marker...
This conversation came up with someone that night also, just got overly anal about it I guess, re-learned allot that I had forgotten messing with it though.just WOW.:laughing: in your first pics if you were to do any thing it would have been to add .003 to the depth. that being said you should have just run what you had. it was good in that pic. maybe not perfect but close enough for government work.
